Monteverdis 1610 Vespers Portland Baroque Orchestra Oct 21st, 2012

Portland Baroque Orchestra (PBO) presents:



Sunday Oct. 21, 2012, 5:00pm Trinity Episcopal Cathedral

Join Pacific MusicWorks for a concert performance of one of the greatest works in the classical western tradition, led by conductor and lutenist Stephen Stubbs, featuring British Tenor Charles Daniels and cornetto virtuoso Bruce Dickey.

What the Critics have to say:

“this was an utterly thrilling Vespers, of a quality you are unlikely ever to encounter anywhere else in the world”. The Seattle Times

“The plangent eloquence and dare-devil bravura of Bruce Dickey’s cornetto playing would charm the skin off a snake “ BBC Music Magazine

“…no solo number was more affecting than Charles Daniels’ performance of the final motet, Audi Coelum. Each verse of this hymn to Mary was garlanded with Monteverdi’s most elaborate ornamentation, creating a transcendent vocal virtuosity.” The Guardian

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is the perfect location for this polychoral masterpiece!  One performance only.

Tickets start at just $32 ($26 students/seniors).  To order by phone or for more information please call 503-222-6000 or go to
