COR16101 Selva morale e spirituale Volume II

Claudio Monteverdi

Without doubt, Monteverdi was the greatest of the early baroque European composers. He revolutionised the music of the theatre and the church by his dramatic and imaginative use of voices and instruments and by his daring harmonies and rhythms. Next to his Vespers of 1610, the Selva morale e spirituale of 1641 is his most significant and virtuosic collection of sacred music. The works featured on this second volume are both demanding and exhilarating: from the rhythmic vitality of the eight-part Dixit Dominus to the relative simplicity of the full choir’s rendering of his old style Messa à 4 da cappella, and culminating in the extraordinary bass solo, Ab aeterno ordinata sum.
