The Sixteen: Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 


The Sixteen performs one of the most magnificent pieces of the classical repertoire, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, famed for its thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements.

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 in the wonderful acoustics of some of the UK’s finest cathedrals’.

‘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
