Claudio Monteverdi - Vespers of 1610
Boyd Jarrell, director
MARIN ORATORIO chorus and the renowned WHOLE NOYSE renaissance wind band join forces to present Monteverdi’s monumental and daring Vespers of 1610. Magnificent and sonorous, sensuous and rhythmically thrilling, Monteverdi weaves an elaborate tapestry of choral, solo, and instrumental pyrotechnics to create this cornerstone of the classical repertoire. Maestro Boyd Jarrell will lead the chorus and cast of vocal soloists accompanied by strings, organ, cornetti, sackbuts, recorders, curtal, and theorbo. Stellar soloists include Christa Pfeiffer, Helene Zindarsian, Peter Kenton, Brian Thorsett, Andrew Metzger, David Long, and Jeffrey Fields. Four centuries after its creation, the Vespers continues to radiate grandeur, opulence and glory.
