Fiori are honoured to have been invited to join forces with CHOIR OF THE EARTH in a project that they are embarking on to record the Monteverdi’s Marian Vespers of 1610.  Founded by Mark Strachan (who was awarded the British Empire Medal in the 2022 Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for services to musicians), CHOIR OF THE EARTH are a unique choir, drawing together singers from all corners of the world to perform and record glorious choral works under the expert tuition of their artistic director Ben England (who was awarded the British Empire Medal in 2021 by the Queen in recognition of his services to choral singing during the pandemic).

Do visit their website here.  For their current Monteverdi project  CHOIR OF THE EARTH will be working with Fiori’s live recording of Monteverdi’s magnificent Marian Vespers of 1610, which Fiori recorded in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford.  You can listen to an interview about the project with CHOIR OF THE EARTH’s founder Mark Strachan, their artistic director Ben England, and Fiori’s artistic director Penelope Rapson, on youtube at:
