(From a recent Facebook post)

We’ve got our fingers and toes crossed for this evening’s GRAMMY Awards Ceremony – our recording of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 is nominated in the Best Choral Performance category…wish us luck! 

About the CD: "Following the success of their Monteverdi Selva morale e spirituale recordings, The Sixteen and Harry Christophers release a work often classed as one of the most significant collections of sacred music ever written: Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610. ...

It is a work grand in conception and structure; revolutionary techniques established in his secular music, such as recitar cantando - speak through singing - are brought to the church platform with stunning effect. "
