An online conversation between Deborah Howard, Trustee of Venice in Peril, who, in ground-breaking studies has explored the interaction between sound and architecture in Renaissance buildings, and Michael Chance, countertenor and Artistic Director of The Grange Festival, who performed in the much-loved 1989 recording of Monteverdi’s Vespers in St Marks. They will talk about sound experience, architectural setting and how different doges, and even the angle of mosaic tesserae, played their part in the Ducal Chapel of St Mark’s. In 2016 Venice in Peril funded the conservation of 7 manuscript choir books of 16th to 18th- century mass settings from St Marks.
