Choir to perform work byMonteverdi

Hastings Philharmonic Choir will be performing Monteverdi’s Vespers on Saturday, November 16, at 7pm at Christ Church, St Leonards.

This magnificent work of 1610 presents a setting of Psalms, sacred motets and other pieces used for evening prayer. Some of the pieces require the choir to produce up to 10 vocal parts at times, as well as accompanying soloists, making for a gloriously rich texture of choral sound.

Tickets are £15 (£13 concs) or £3 (aged 16 and under) and available by calling 01424 552119, online at and from Hastings Information Centre, Imagen Gallery and Youngs.
