Harry Christophers says "The Vespers is one of the most significant collections of sacred music ever written. We will follow Monteverdi's dictum recitarcantando - speak through singing - to maximum effect, bringing this glorious work to life in the wonderful acoustics of some of the UK's finest cathedrals".
