Monteverdi: Vespers of 1610

COR16126 Monteverdi: Vespers of 1610


Price: £20.00


Two-CD Set 

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; recolutionary techniques established in his secular music, such as recitar cantando - speak through singing - are brought to the church platform with stunning effect. 

Harry writes:

'Its variety alone makes it unique – thrilling psalm settings with virtuosic writing for both multi-part choir and instrumentalists to exotic and sensual settings of texts from the Song of Songs for solo voices. Every movement is full of luscious harmonies, drama and an evocative musical language which is so beautifully constructed for all concerned.'
