Monteverdi Vespers

In 1610, some 28 years after he had last composed anything for the church, Monteverdi quietly published what is now celebrated as one of the greatest pillars of the sacred Baroque repertoire. The Vespers of the Blessed Virgin is conceived on such a monumental scale, with such heartrending dramatic and theatrical effects, that it has been described as the greatest opera he never wrote. On the 450th anniversary of Monteverdi’s birth, Vox Luminis pays tribute to this astonishing 90-minute masterpiece with an intimate performance comprising just twelve solo singers and the cast of the Freiburg Baroque Consortium – bringing you closer to the music than ever before.

Performance runs: c. 1 hr 55 mins (including interval)
