Monteverdi’s Vespers, from 1610, will be played at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone this Sunday evening.

“The revolutionary work draws on a whole variety of new techniques to gain its effect – techniques which come from a world of emotional and dramatic music rather than the accepted ‘church’ manner of the day,” explains conductor Adrian Boynton

“Come and enjoy the sumptuous splendour of this amazing masterpiece,” he invites.

Philippa Burton will lead the music, featuring sackbutts, cornet and other instrumentation.

Tickets for the performance cost £15 and £13 with children admitted at £5.

Concessions are available.

For more information or to book, call MK 246486 or simply turn up on the night – show time is 7.30pm.
