In 1610, disgruntled with his lot as choirmaster to the Duke of Mantua, Monteverdi set about compiling what was to become one of the most significant choral publications in history. At its heart lies the Vespers a collection of virtuosic solo movements and magisterial choruses from which can be assembled music suitable for any Solemn Vespers, whatever the forces available. Many movements offer abridged versions and a complete alternative Magnificat is provided. This performance is of the full work in all its opulent glory, with the addition of the simplified Magnificat and the Missa In illo tempore - a setting of the Mass without which no liturgical publication of the time could have been complete. The fruit of some two and a half decades of research and performance, this is a rendition cut free from transient artifice and imbued with a degree of fully formed confidence that can only spring from the heart. A dazzling array of soloists join Robert King and The King's Consort in this recording - a project made possible by the generosity of all the many hundreds of people who donated to Hyperion's appeal for recording funds in 2005.

"Despite having heard four wonderful volumes of Monteverdi's sacred music from The King's Consort, and its 2004 Proms performance of the 1610 Vespers, I was still unprepared for the ecstatic consequences of taking seriously at least one aspect of Monteverdi's so-called seconda-pratica - using much freer counterpoint, with an increasing hierarchy of voices: that the word is mistress of the music. And what ecstasy!" - Gramophone EDITOR'S CHOICE
