Monteverdi Vespers

Ex Cathedra Consort & Baroque Ensemble
His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts
Jeffrey Skidmore


To hear Monteverdi’s famous Vespers live is to travel back to the late Renaissance, the cusp of the Baroque, and to experience some of the most magnificent music of any era: a masterpiece of vocal and instrumental virtuosity that crosses the centuries, and speaks with just as much brilliance and emotion today.


We’re delighted to welcome back the world-class early brass ensemble, His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts.
