An Evening with Claudio
Shakespeare in Italy and Cantemus music present a celebration of the 450th anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi's birth. Two Shakespearean actors, Julian Curry and Mary Chater will use Monteverdi's letters to illustrate his life and music. The concert will feature his extraordinary Mass in time of war from 1610. Music will be sung by Cantemus directed by Christopher Arnold and include madrigals and organ works from the time.
