Part of the BBC Proms.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the Monteverdi Choir returns to the Proms with its founder-conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner for one of the greatest of all choral works - Beethoven's mighty setting of the Mass. It's a work the choir has performed throughout its history, most recently in a second acclaimed recording. The unique atmosphere of a Late Night Prom is the perfect setting for this tumultuous spiritual journey, in which we acknowledge doubt and search for redemption.
