On 5th March 1964, the Monteverdi Choir performed its first ever concert - Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610, in the chapel of King's College Cambridge. Exactly 50 years later, the now world-renowned Choir celebrates its golden anniversary with a recreation of this historic performance - same repertoire, same day, same venue, and even some of the original performers.
