Festive Cantatas – A Monteverdi Christmas Vespers at the Cathedral
With violins, cornetti, sackbuts, theorbos, keyboards and voices, this special Christmas presentation recreates the lavish celebration of Christmas Vespers from the Church of San Marco in 17th-century Venice, with music by the incomparable Claudio Monteverdi! Featuring works from his 1641 collection of sacred music, the concert will resound with the glorious sounds of a Christmas celebration you won’t soon forget. Gloria in excelsis!
“This Christmas Vespers, led by David Fallis, was an engaging blend of scholarship with honest sentiment plus all the bells and whistles that the early Baroque could muster in service of religious music. The result was nothing less than splendid, one of the best musical treats of the holiday season.”
