Stephen Alltop, conductor; Baroque Music Ensemble, Dunbar Festival Orchestra, and Alice Millar Chapel Choir One of the greatest choral-instrumental works of all time, Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers is the largest-scale religious composition of the pre-Bach era. From solos and duets to 10-part choruses of outstanding complexity — accompanied by the vibrant orchestral colors of cornetti, sackbuts, and theorbos — Monteverdi demonstrates unparalleled mastery of forms and genres.
