New music for a new building

Went to Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 last Sunday. The performance was in St Stephen's Church, Norwich. The stained glass in the east window above the performers, seen in the photo here, records the date when the remodelling of the medieval church was completed. The date was 1610.

Now visit another of Norwich's historic churches to learn about medieval mystics with musical connections.
