Claudio MonteverdiVespers of 1610


Harry Christophers – Conductor

The Sixteen

Programme Note

We bring one of the cornerstones of the classical repertoire, Monteverdi’s monumental Vespers of 1610, back to London after a sell-out UK tour in 2019.

Famed for its thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements, conductor Harry Christophers says ‘the Vespers is quite simply one of the greatest pieces 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’.
