About this event

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the Monteverdi Choir returns to the Proms with its founder-conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner for one of the greatest of all choral works – Beethoven’s mighty setting of the Mass.

It’s a work the choir has performed throughout its history, most recently in a second acclaimed recording. The unique atmosphere of a Late Night Prom is the perfect setting for this tumultuous spiritual journey, in which we acknowledge doubt and search for redemption.

There will be no interval

Please note this event contains an update to the concert timing from that in BBC Proms 2014: The Official Guide.
