Monteverdi’s great Vespers of 1610 were written as an ‘audition’ for the job of Maestro di Capella at St Mark’s, Venice, and it’s little wonder that he got the job; the piece is a dazzling demonstration of the great Italian composer’s genius, juxtaposing intimate, prayerful moments with rich, virtuosic music.

From the opening cornett and sack but fanfares filling the rafters of Gloucester Cathedral, The Academy of Ancient Music bring exuberance and flair to evoke the golden grandeur of Monteverdi’s Venice.

Gloucester Cathedral

A warm welcome awaits you at Gloucester Cathedral – one of the finest medieval buildings in the country and steeped in history, from royal coronations and burials to Harry Potter film sets. Begun in 1089 and remodelled over four centuries, its architectural magnificence encompasses Norman and English Gothic styles. The extraordinary fan-faulted medieval cloisters and Great East Window are national treasures and the Lady Chapel houses some of the finest Arts & Crafts glass in the country.

With a seating capacity of 900, Gloucester Cathedral is a perfect venue to watch grand Music Festival events and see world-class choirs and orchestras perform.

Experience the beautiful Cathedral up close. Take a 360° virtual tour, customised by kind permission of Tetbury-based artist and photographer Maria Stengard-Green for this year’s Cheltenham Music Festival.
