Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church
- Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610
- New York Baroque Inc.
We close the season with one of the greatest works in the entire choral repertoire. Monteverdi’s tour de force juxtaposes the two musical styles vying for predominance at the turn of the 17th century—the stile antico and the stile moderno. You’ll savor the best of the Renaissance and Baroque all at once. Scored for a diverse array of instruments, the Vespers will surround you in the kaleidoscopic splendor of the early 17th-century sound world, with colossal choruses and intimate solo motets alike, at the beautiful space at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic on the Upper West Side.
