In March 1964, as a student at King’s College, Cambridge, John Eliot Gardiner led a performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers that not only launched his career as a conductor, but also provided the impetus to create his world-renowned Monteverdi Choir. In 1989, to mark the Monteverdi Choir’s 25th anniversary, he made this legendary live recording in St. Mark’s, Venice (where Monteverdi had held the position of maestro di cappella), a performance that was also filmed by the BBC.
