Monteverdi was already the greatest composer of his time when his Vespers for the Blessed Virgin was published in 1610. The instruments and voices required were extravagant for that time: virtuoso vocal soloists, two expert 5-part choruses, strings, cornetti and sackbuts (Renaissance brass instruments), recorders and a variety of continuo instruments. The 2014 OBF performance featured His Majesty's Sagbutts and Cornetts from England, and the OBF Chorus and Baroque Orchestra, under the direction of Matthew Halls.
