Album Description

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 fulfilment 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’s 2014 recording of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award this year and the choir’s acclaimed Selva morale e spirituale series is also available on CORO.
