Music of the seventeenth century was little known to the concertgoing or record-buying public, up until fifty years or so ago when Monteverdi’s Vespers were performed under the inspiration of figures such as Michael Tippett as part of a modern revival of early music. Subsequently, it has been one of the most celebrated works both with choral societies and early music specialists.
Here, the Rodolfus Choir offer their interpretation of one of the most magnificent works of the seventeenth century. Following their highly successful release with Signum earlier this year, Choral Arrangements by Clytus Gottwald, the Rodolfus Choir perform earlymusic as sensitively and musically as they perform music of the twentieth-century.
The Rodolfus Choir was founded by Ralph Allwood in 1984. It is a scratch choir of singers aged 25 and younger, primarily selected from members of the Eton Choral Courses. It has toured extensively in the UK and abroad, and on top of performances at such venues as St John's, Smith Square and the Three Choir Festival in Gloucester they have produced a considerable discography of music ranging from Monteverdi to Grier.
