Monteverdi: Messa a quattro voci et salmi of 1650 Volume II

Monteverdi: Messa a quattro voci et salmi of 1650 Volume II



Monteverdi’s sacred vocal compositions introduced the expression of powerful and personal emotions to the world of church music. Whilst it took him a number of years to find fulfillment in his work, Monteverdi was a revered composer within his lifetime and his music is regarded as revolutionary, marking the change from the Renaissance style to that of the Baroque. This album includes some of the finest works from Monteverdi’s years as director of music at St Mark’s in Venice, published posthumously in 1650 as the Messa a quattro voci et salmi.

The Sixteen
Harry Christophers

'The sound product follows the high level of the interpretation, with a good balance between voices, and between the vocal and instrumental formations... this is another beautiful contribution that seduces the high calibre quality of work that Harry Christophers and The Sixteen have carried out over the last four decades.'
