Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 – April 15, 16, 17

The King’s College Chapel Choir is suspending its cycle of Bach masterworks for one year to present another great pillar of the Baroque repertoire – the Vespers of 1610 by Claudio Monteverdi.  A monumental work scored for soloists, choir, and orchestra, the Vespers foreshadowed the religious masterworks of Bach and Handel, and has earned a place in the history of western music as a revolutionary and now iconic work.

Featuring the King’s choristers alongside 14 instrumentalists on period instruments, well-known British tenor Charles Daniels, a cast of early music soloists from across Canada, and the boy sopranos of Capella Regalis Men & Boys Choir, this tour of performances in three of Nova Scotia’s architectural gems promises an outstanding musical and educational experience for students and audience members alike.

This is your chance to see Monteverdi’s masterwork in all the splendour with which it is performed in Europe and the major urban centres of North America, right here in Nova Scotia!
