Claudio Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine Performed by L'Arpeggiata, Raquel Andueza, Hannah Morrison, Gunther Vandeven, Kevin Skelton, Fernando Guimarães, Emiliano Gonzalez-Toro, Jan van Elsacker, Fulvio Bettini, Hubert Claessens, João Fernandes, Directed by Christina Pluhar

Local ensemble Pegasus Early Music's rendition of the Vespers, which we saw today at the David Hochstein Memorial Music School's beautiful Performance Hall, was closer to the intimate rendition above than the more grandiose one below. Professor Massimo Ossi, who introduced tonight's performance with a lecture, was right; "Believe me, you will not miss the choirs."
