. A mighty achievement. . Thank you. . John . Lennon. . a monumental achievement that has influenced every music documentary since . New . Classics . For most of its history, popular music has rarely been that which most people like. . Jazz, for instance, has always been a minority interest. . But in the era which was dominated by swing, the music and its popularity were equally matched. . White musicians became bored with the asinine popular music they were expected to play, music pumped out by . Tin . Pan . Alley, and tried to emulate the style and freedom of their black counterparts. . Most of them were too intelligent as musicians to indulge in mere imitation. . What they created was the first white music based on black music which was not stolen from black music.

In recent years . John . Eliot . Gardiners name has been linked more than any other to a huge upsurge of interest in . Monteverdis extraordinary . Vespers of . Id 10. lieu-itched al his firsl hearing of the work us a child, he went on to conduct it as a . Cambridge undergraduate. . For that first performance of the then almost unheard-of . Vespers, . Gardiner formed . The . Monteverdi . Choir, which today enjoys a considerable international reputation in the performance of a wide range of music. . In all of their performances over the last twenty-five years the choir has been accompanied by . The . English . Baroque . Soloists, also founded by . Gardiner (in 1978). . It is these forces, together with . His . Majesties . Sagbutts and . Cornetts and the . London . Oratory . Junior . Choir, which perform the . Vespers in . St. . Marks. While the . Vespers were published three years before . Monteverdi took up his post as maestro di cappella of . St. . Marks, . Gardiner believes the work may well have been written to attract the attention of the . Venetian authorities. . For, although a highly successful court composer in . Mantua, . Monteverdi was deeply unhappy there and would have seen . Venice as likely to . In-more appreciative of his talents. (Indeed, he stayed in . Venice for the remaining thirty years of his life and enjoyed there the eminence and fortune which he considered his due. ) . In his introduction to the performance, . Gardiner produces evidence from the . Venetian . State . Archives to suggest that it may have been the . Vespers which were performed at . Monteverdis audition for the . St. . Marks job. In fact the origins of the . Vespers are shrouded in mystery - and it is not even known where or whether they were performed in . Monteverdis lifetime . Nevertheless, it is. as . John . Eliot . Gardiner contends, a work that fits the architecture and resonance of . St. . Marks perfectly. . As the composer of . L. Orfeo, . Monteverdi was a man of the theatre par excellence. . Musically, the . Vespers are . L. Orfeos twin and form a highly theatrical work which seems to find its natural stage in . St. . Marks. . Although much of . Gardiners performance takes place on a central platform, he also positions singers, at different times, in pulpits, galleries and archways, creating an extraordinary visual and acoustic effect. In recent years the . Vespers have been the subject of considerable speculation. . Some academics have argued that the . Vespers as published do not constitute a liturgical or musical entity. . The interweaving of the psalms and the sometimes remarkably sensuous motets, in place of the traditional plainchant and antiphons, is the cause of much controversy. . Gardiner is far from dismissive about this speculation but emphasizes that it is not more than that - pure guesswork. . He remains impressed by the structural balance and unity of the . Vespers as published - and that is how they are performed here. . Jonathan . Fulford. Ann . Monoyios - . Sopranos. Marinella . Pennicchi - . Sopranos . Michael . Chance - . Countertenor. Mark .
