Monteverdi Vespers

 

On March 1, 2020, Baltimore Choral Arts performed Claudio Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers in collaboration with Baltimore Baroque Band, Peabody’s Baroque Orchestra, Peabody Renaissance Ensemble, Washington Cornett and Sackbutt Ensemble, and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Composed for St. Mark‘s Basilica in Venice, Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers is the most ambitious and spectacular composition written before Bach. In Baltimore Choral Arts’ second collaboration with MICA, Professors James Rouvelle and Lili Maya added multi-sensory images to further illuminate this grand and expressive masterpiece.
