The Monteverdi Choir
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine is a sacred work that draws upon a variety of secular early Baroque vocal styles. The music is quietly contemplative and joyously ecstatic, bringing an operatic sensibility for the first time to sacred music. The Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists, conducted by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, are renowned for their groundbreaking performances and recordings of this much-loved work.
