As Robert Hollingworth of I Fagiolini writes: ‘After many years, I Fagiolini returns to this iconic if misunderstood work with a truly stellar line-up of performers dipped in the Monteverdi cauldron when young. Much of the glory of the Vespers’ psalm settings is in their detail, too often lost in the vast acoustics of many venues. Monteverdi even suggests the more intimate ‘chapels or chambers of princes’ for the book’s motets. Experimenting with Hall One’s acoustic clarity, close balconies and up to date with the latest research, I Fagiolini and the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble offer an intimate guide to this defining work.
This performance will last approximately 2 hours including an interval.
