(Rescheduled from March 2020)
This coming spring, we will be joined by world renowned, pioneering historic brass ensemble His Majesty’s Sagbutts & Cornetts for a performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers
Written in 1610 it is unlikely Monteverdi viewed it as a single continuous work. But following the first commercial recording of the Vespers in 1953, this renaissance gem has been recognised as one of the most ambitious choral works written before Bach and is one of the more challenging pieces to perform in the choral repertoire.
Rarely performed by choirs, perhaps due to the unusually large number of tenor parts in Nisi Dominus, this is a wonderful opportunity to hear the work performed by one of London’s most ambitious amateur choirs accompanied by the period instruments of the celebrated band His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts.
Tickets will be available nearer the time
