The Sixteen Choir & Orchestra

Monteverdi Vespers

Monteverdi Vespers

Famed for its thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements, The Sixteen’s founder and conductor Harry Christophers says ‘the Vespers is one of the most significant collections of sacred music ever written, mixing profound expression with unfailing musical beauty. We will follow Monteverdi’s dictum recitar cantando - speak through singing - to maximum effect, bringing this glorious work to life for a 21st century audience’.
