Named for the English translation of "Monteverdi," the Green Mountain Project offered their inaugural performance on January 3, 2010 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of publication of Vespers of 1610.  The project was such a tremendous success that they gathered again on January 2, 2011 to perform for an audience of over 1100 at St. Mary the Virgin in Times Square thus beginning a new tradition.

Videos of the complete performance in January 2013 are available on Vimeo and YouTube.  Live recordings of 2010 inaugural performance and 2012's A Grand Festive Vespers ca. 1640 are available for sale here.

This program is available for bookings for the 2014-2015 season.
