Green Mountain Project : Vespers of 1610 at Times Square
145 West 46th Street
Type: Music & Concerts
The Green Mountain Project (honoring the literal translation of Monteverdi's name) returns with Claudio Monteverdi's grand Vespers of 1610, the work that launched this beloved annual event. The antiphons, responses, motets, hymn and canticle that Monteverdi shaped into the Vespers of 1610 represent the pinnacle of 17th century sacred music, and over 30 musicians will perform this masterpiece in an ideal space, the glorious Church of St. Mary the Virgin. Because of the overwhelming audience demand to hear this work, there will be two performances on Wednesday and Thursday, January 2 and 3, 2013 at 7:30pm.
