  1. Vespro della Beata Vergine, 'Vespers' (1610) - Claudio Monteverdi

Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 is the most ambitious work of sacred music before JS Bach’s great oratorios. This remarkable and monumental work combines flamboyance, grandeur, and breath-taking beauty. It features virtuosic vocal and instrumental writing in a unique and overwhelming sequence of music. Published in Venice in 1610, it is one of the greatest masterpieces of the late Renaissance.

It has long been an ambition of the Cardiff Polyphonic Choir to perform this wonderful work. The choir, under their conductor David Young, are joined by period instrument ensemble Réjouissance (leader: Simon Jones)and virtuoso brass group His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts. Together with seven talented soloists they will perform the Vespers of 1610 in the beautiful setting of Llandaff Cathedral.
