Claudio Monteverdi – Un concert spirituel


Claudio Monteverdi (1567 – 1643)

Un concert spirituel

Label: Harmonia Mundi, HMA 1951032
Year: 2000


Concerto Vocale

Rene Jacobs – conductor

From Mantua to Venice
Two distinct styles are discernible in Monteverdi’s monumental output – he called them the prima prattica and the seconda prattica, to distinguish his works in the traditional Renaissance style from those in the ‘modern’ style, which founded the new musical aesthetic we now call the ‘Baroque’. Even in the inherently conservative domain of church music Monteverdi was a man of the avant-garde. This is amply borne out in the famous motets, duos and trios on this recording.
