Join the 2018/19 Monteverdi Apprentices and members of the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists for a showcase recital in the Chapel of King’s College London. A masterpiece of Victorian architecture, nestled between the Strand and Victoria Embankment, the Chapel’s sonorous acoustic and opulent decoration will provide a stunning backdrop to a programme of choral works, curated and directed by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, including J.S. Bach’s famous motet ‘Jesu, meine Freude’, two Monteverdi song cycles and Henry Purcell’s desolate masterpiece, ‘Let mine eyes run down with tears’.

An essential conclusion to the Apprentices’ time embedded amongst the Monteverdi ensembles, this recital gives Apprentices the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities as a free-standing vocal consort, consolidates the musical, technical and stylistic developments that have defined their Apprentice year and – perhaps most importantly – enables a wider audience to see them at work under the baton of one of the world’s greatest living conductors.

Recital to include works by J.S. Bach, Monteverdi, Purcell, Schütz, Brahms, Fauré, and many more - final programme to be announced soon.
