The King's Consort is a prominent British period music orchestra founded in 1980 by the English conductor and harpsichordist Robert King (b. 1960, Wombourne). The ensemble has an associated choral group, Choir of The King's Consort. Together, they have made over 90 recordings, largely on the Hyperion label, and sold over 1,000,000 discs. The orchestra performs concert seasons in the UK and tours internationally.

This Hyperion recording, Monteverdi Vespers 1610, is by Robert King and the King's Consort, a group perhaps best known for its comprehensive effort to record all the vocal works of Henry Purcell, a composer a full century away from the time of Monteverdi

The King's Consort ( TKC) is one of Europe's leading period instrument orchestras. Founded in 1980 by Robert King, TKC and its equally renowned Choir of The King's Consort have toured in five continents and appeared in almost every European country, in Japan, Hong Kong and the Far East, as well as North and South America. With 95 CD's in the catalogue, and more than one million CD sales, TKC is one of the world's most-recorded historical instrument orchestras

Here, Robert King with his King's Consort follows up the success of his big Purcell series with the first in a Monteverdi series, also for Hyperion. The eight items offered all come from the great 1640 collection, Selva Morale e Spirituale, six psalm settings associated with Christmas Vespers (including the haunting Beatus Vir), plus the most magnificent setting of the Magnificat in eight parts and the Mass in four parts "da capella", harking back to an earlier polyphonic style.
