Being one of the of the Monteverdi Ensembles, which consists of of the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloist and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, the Monteverdi Choir is frequently praised for being one of the best choirs in the world. Founded by the renowned music director, John Eliot Gardiner in 1964, the choir is based in the United Kingdom. The Monteverdi Choir frequently emerges in remarkable synergy with Gardiner’s aforementioned other two ensembles. The choir is recognised for its ability to switch composer, language and parlance with eloquent conviction. Their recordings have won numerous prizes and awards.
With the Monteverdi’s Apprenticeship Programme, the choir became a training ground for the younger generation of aspiring talented choral and solo singers. This frequently results in them singing the choir’s solo parts and occasionally even placing them on a path to their own solo career.
