Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment • Monteverdi: Vespers 1610 (2CD)
This disc represents the beginning of the orchestra partnership for Signum Records with The Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment, one of London and the world’s leading period-instrument ensembles. Led by Robert Howarth, this recording of the Monteverdi Vespers was made at Kings Place following the orchestra's successful 2010 tour of the work.
"What is impressive is the grammatical sense (underpinned by flexible accentuation) that the choir brings to the projection of the words in Dixit Dominus and at many other places. Also, as we might expect, the instrumentalists are terrific" – BBC Music Magazine
