A spectacular masterpiece of sonic grandeur, Monteverdi’s Vespers blends the grand traditions of Venetian sacred music with the new world of the baroque: opulent choruses, dramatic solo arias and duets, and some of the most ambitious instrumental music the world had ever heard.

Grand yet intimate, prayerful yet sensual, Vespers is a musical experience like no other: a dazzling array of textures and sonorities that will amaze and delight.

A pillar of baroque sacred repertoire
