About Us

The season climaxes with one of the most memorable concert experiences: Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610, performed in the inspiring architecture of Chester Cathedral, a worthy stand-in for St Mark's Venice. This sequence of vocal and choral masterpieces, composed just at the time when opera was taking off, is unique in its colour and vivid, virtuosic vocal writing. CBS performs alongside the talented young singers who make up the Fieri Consort, whose debut CD in 2017 focused on the music of Monteverdi and who the BBC Music Magazine described as 'giving some of the best in the business a run for their scudi'. Accompanied by regular partners the Eighteenth Century Orchestra and, for the first time, The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, this should be a high point of Chester music making in 2019.
