In­ti­mate Ves­pers

BBC Music Magazine - - THE MONTH IN MUSIC -

If you’re search­ing for a land­mark record­ing to cel­e­brate the 450th an­niver­sary of Mon­teverdi’s birth this year, look no fur­ther than the Dunedin Con­sort and John Butt’s Ves­pers of 1610. With just ten voices in­volved, they of­fer an in­ti­mate per­for­mance of this rich col­lec­tion of mu­sic. The re­sult is, says our critic, an ‘out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion’ to the cel­e­bra­tions.
