Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Cleveland will have a free concert Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m., featuring Quire Cleveland.
Quire Cleveland, led by artistic director Ross W. Duffin, will perform pieces by Monteverdi.
Monteverdi was celebrated (and criticized) for the way he portrayed expression and emotion in a revolutionary°new style. Quire Cleveland presents his°Mass of the Most Blessed Virgin,°an exhilarating work published in Mantua in 1610, at the same time as his iconic°Vespers. Framing the mass are some of his most brilliant madrigals, reworked into devotional masterpieces.
Cathedral of St John the Evangelist is at 1007 Superior Ave (at E 9th St).
