CML Chamber Choir celebrates Monteverdi with triumphant Vespers

CML Chamber Choir celebrates Monteverdi with triumphant Vespers

CML joined forces with leading Baroque instrumentalists and soloists on Saturday, 20 May, in a musical commemoration of Monteverdi’s 450th birthday.

The concert, at St James’s, Piccadilly, attracted an audience well in excess of 200, and utilised all corners of the church, replicating the original performances in St Mark’s, Venice.

‘A wonderful and heartfelt performance of this great work. Soloists, choir and instrumentalists were all totally committed, and the use of the spaces and positions provided by the church recaptured some of the intoxicating mystery of St Mark’s. I think you provided a benchmark for future performances of this work, and a way in which it could be brought into the central place in the repertoire that it deserves.’
– Sir Roger Scruton

‘The choir goes from strength to strength with every concert I attend. The use of period players seems to have a wonderfully visceral effect and I liked the placing of singers around the space.’
