The Sixteen: Monteverdi Vespers of 1610

Harry Christophers                  Conductor
Katy Hill, Charlotte Mobbs      Soprano
Jeremy Budd, Mark Dobell      Tenor
Ben Davies, Robert Davies      Bass

A stunning opening to the Festival by the fabulous ensemble, The Sixteen Choir and Orchestra performing one of the most magnificent pieces in the
classical repertoire, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610.

Expect thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements ideally suited to the acoustics of the Cathedral Nave.

Conductor Harry Christophers says: ‘The Vespers is one of the most significant collections of sacred music ever written. We will follow Monteverdi’s dictum recitar cantando – speak through singing – to maximum effect, bringing this glorious work to life.’

‘I was hooked, flipped upside down, dazzled’ (The Arts Desk)

‘…these musicians achieved a magical balance between the extroversion of performance and the introspection of prayer’ (Financial Times)
