As a finale to this stellar season, The Toronto Consort presents one of the greatest musical masterpieces of all time, the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610! From the splendour of the richly-scored psalms to the intimacy of the sensuous motets, this is a work of infinite variety and profundity. For this special performance we have brought together an international group of singers and players, led by British tenor Charles Daniels, joined by tenor Kevin Skelton and Montreal’s premier cornetto and sackbut ensemble La Rose des Vents.
Join guest lecturer Bruce Dickey – performer, recording artist and teacher, for the Pre-Concert Talk The Monteverdi Vespers: Reflections of a 21st-century Cornettist. Talks are FREE and held one hour before the concerts, in the gymnasium.
