Tune In: English Baroque Soloists and the Monteverdi Choir

Tune in and join us on the evening of Thursday, April 30—live from Carnegie Hall—as conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner leads the English Baroque Soloists and the Monteverdi Choir in a performance of Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine.

Thursday at 8 PM (EDT): Listen and join the chat

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. This concert is part of our month-long Before Bach artistic focus.
