Following on from a sell-out tour in 2014, The Sixteen revisits one of the most magnificent pieces of the classical repertoire, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, famed for its thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements.

‘Its variety alone makes it unique – thrilling psalm settings with virtuosic writing for both multi-part choir and instrumentalists to exotic and sensual settings of texts from the Song of Songs for solo voices. Every movement is full of luscious harmonies, drama and an evocative musical language which is so beautifully constructed for all concerned.’ (Harry Christophers)

★★★★ ‘I was hooked, flipped upside down and dazzled’ (The Arts Desk)

★★★★ ‘…these musicians achieved a magical balance between the extroversion of performance and the introspection of prayer’ (Financial Times)
