The Green Mountain Project (honoring the literal translation of Monteverdi’s name) is an annual event that began in NYC in 2010 under the musical direction of Scott Metcalfe and artistic direction of Jolle Greenleaf. Vespers is made up of antiphons, psalms, motets, a hymn and canticle that Monteverdi shaped into Claudio Monteverdi’s beloved Vespers of 1610.
Each year, we offer performances with up to 30 musicians of this masterpiece and other recreated Vespers in the glorious acoustics of Church of St. Mary the Virgin in New York and Cambridge’s magnificent St. Paul’s Church. To learn more or purchase CD’s, visit http://www.tenetnyc.com/media.
TENET is one of New York’s preeminent vocal ensembles. Under artistic director Jolle Greenleaf, TENET is winning acclaim for its innovative programming, virtuosic singing and command of repertoire that spans the Middle Ages to the present. TENET features distinguished soloists who shine in one-voice-to- a-part singing and as joined voices in small ensembles. http://www.tenetnyc.com

Deus in adjutorium meum intende.
Domine ad adjuvandum me festina.
Gloria patri et filio et spiritui sancto: sicut erat
in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in secula
O God, make speed to save me.
O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy
Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and forever
shall be, world without end. Amen.
