Vespers of 1610

As promised, here's a conversation about Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 with Deborah Fox of Pegasus Early Music and conductor Paul O'Dette. Why is the Vespers so extraordinary?  Why, if it's so amazing, is it rarely performed?  Why isn't it as famous as Handel's Messiah?  Paul and Deb answer these questions and touch on the raw emotional power of the work in our conversation.  I'm thrilled you'll be able to hear this on the radio, thanks to Deborah Fox and recording engineer Carl Pultz of Alembic Productions.  Hear the Vespers Monday, November 2 at 8 p.m. on Classical 91.5 and FM 90.3, streaming at  ~ Brenda
