Released:
Label: Naxos
The Vespers, completed in 1610, is perhaps Monteverdi's most famous composition. It is a transitional work that bridges the worlds of highly formal Renaissance sacred polyphony and the colorful, theatrical style of early Baroque opera. Note the rhythmic and melodic freedom of the Nigra sum and the ethereal echo effects of the Gloria Patri.
