Music at Oxford Presents – I Fagiolini: Monteverdi Vespers of 1640

Friday 17 November 7.30pm. Sheldonian Theatre

In 1640 Monteverdi published a collection of his other church music that hadn’t been contained in the ‘1610 Vespers’ so familiar today. From this later, no less sonorous or virtuosic collection, I Fagiolini and the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble offer a Vespers for a Venetian event with which we know Monteverdi to have been involved towards the end of his life – a magnificent celebration of the Feast of St John the Baptist. Monteverdi’s fabulous psalm settings form the main part of this programme alongside a grand three-choir Magnificat by Gabrieli.
