  1. Vespro della Beata Vergine, 'Vespers' (1610) - Claudio Monteverdi

To celebrate 450 years since the birth of Claudio Monteverdi, the Torbay Singers are delighted to perform his Vespers of 1610 (Vespro della Beata Vergine). This monumental Baroque masterpiece brings together choir, soloists and instrumentalists in a celebration of different musical styles of the time. There are moments of serene contemplation and bombastic choruses, showing off the range of the performers.

This performance fulfils a long-term ambition for the Torbay Singers to perform the work, in this 50th anniversary year since the choir was established. All Saints in Babbacombe provides an ideal setting for the performance, and we have invited some of the best instrumentalists in the country and exciting young soloists to help us make the most of the space and acoustics.

Monteverdi is thought to have composed this collection of pieces to show off his talents and range, possibly leading to his future position as maestro di cappella at St Mark’s in Venice in 1613. It still acts as a show-piece for the performers and marks a highlight of our 50th anniversary celebrations.
