Vespers of 1610 was the most ambitious work of sacred music until Bachís great oratorios more than a century later.
It is the towering masterpiece of the late Renaissance
early Baroque and expresses the pageantry of grand Venetian style and the intimacy of solo serenade in a striking assimilation of both old and new styles. This creates an astonishing variety of modern music superimposed upon an old-style
cantus firmus technique. The two styles are reconciled with breath-taking beauty, and the technique allows Monteverdi to build an enormous structure that surpasses anything his contemporaries were able to achieve. No other surviving work from the time is written on such a scale.
It has long been an
ambition of the Choir to perform this in the beautiful
setting of the Cathedral at Llandaff
