‘The Monteverdi Choir is considered as one of the best choirs in the world. It is hard to describe a sound experience of metaphysical expression. Balance in all vocal groups, impressive intonation, virtuosic shaping of the most difficult coloraturas, fabulous choir soloists – all that is the Monteverdi Choir. And all that is John Eliot Gardiner.’
