Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in Monteverdi's resplendent Vespers. Published 400 years ago in 1610, Monteverdi's choral masterpiece is a glorious summation of the different styles of Venetian church music of the 1600s. Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his Monteverdi Choir make the most of the vast spaces of the Royal Albert Hall to perform the music with which they made their Proms debut in 1968.
