“The Baroque starts here,” is how Music Director Eric Holtan summarizes this seminal work. “Vespers” refers to the centuries-old tradition of evening prayers, but in creating a work of monumental scale, Monteverdi includes both tranquil prayerful moments and ecstatic outbursts of absolute joy. In partnership with Arizona Early Music Society, the iconic Vespers of 1610 will utilize sackbuts, cornettos, recorders and other rare period instruments.
