City of Bristol Choir: Monteverdi Vespers of 1610

Saturday 18th June 2011 at 7.30pm A spectacular finish to City of Bristol Choir’s anniversary season with a performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 in Clifton Cathedral, Bristol, in a collaboration with virtuosic early music ensemble His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts. The group has a worldwide reputation and its performance of the work was one of the highlights of the 2010 BBC Proms season. With performers arranged around the Cathedral echoing the galleries and balconies of St Mark’s Venice this unique piece wonderfully combines the glories of the Renaissance with the opulence of the Baroque.
