Monteverdi Choir John Eliot Gardiner, conductor
In recent years John Eliot Gardiner's name has been linked more than any other to a huge upsurge of interest in Monteverdi's extraordinary Vespers of 1610. Bewitched at his first hearing of the work as a child, he went on to conduct it as a Cambridge undergraduate. For that first performance of the then almost unheard-of Vespers, Gardiner formed The Monteverdi Choir, which today enjoys a considerable international reputation in the performance of a wide range of music. In all of their performances over the last twenty-five years the choir has been accompanied by The English Baroque Soloists, also founded by Gardiner (in 197. It is these forces, together with His Majesties Sagbutts and Cornetts and the London Oratory Junior Choir, which perform the Vespers in St. Mark's.
The visual content of this DVD package enhances the power of what already ranks among the finest recordings of the 1610 Vespers. Outstanding solos from Bryn Terfel . . . underpin the emotional energy
. . . Highly recommended.
