Live performance by The Green Mountain Project on January 3, 2013 at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, New York City.
The Green Mountain Project (honoring the literal translation of Monteverdi’s name) is an annual event that began in NYC in 2010 under the musical direction of Scott Metcalfe and artistic direction of Jolle Greenleaf. Vespers is made up of antiphons, psalms, motets, a hymn and canticle that Monteverdi shaped into Claudio Monteverdi's beloved Vespers of 1610.
Each year, we offer performances with up to 30 musicians of this masterpiece and other recreated Vespers in the glorious acoustics of Church of St. Mary the Virgin in New York and Cambridge's magnificent St. Paul's Church. To learn more or purchase CD’s, visit tenetnyc.com/media.

Et misericordia eius a progenie in progenies
Fecit potentiam in bracchio suo: dispersit
superbos mente cordis sui.
Deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles.
And his mercy is on them that fear him, from generation
He has shown strength with his arm: he has scattered
the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their seat
and exalted the humble.
