Sir John Eliot Gardiner (conductor)
The Monteverdi Choir and Sir John Eliot Gardiner live at the BBC Proms. 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, and has made two acclaimed recordings of. The unique atmosphere of a Late Night Prom is the perfect setting for this tumultuous spiritual journey, in which we are invited to acknowledge doubt and search for redemption.
This Prom will be repeated on Wednesday 3rd September at 2pm.
