      Monteverdi: Selva morale e spirituale: Magnificat (12:07)

      The Sixteen / Harry Christophers

      This recording is the last of three volumes of The Sixteen’s series devoted to Monteverdi’s Selva morale e spirituale. Monteverdi was the among the greatest of the early Baroque composers. He revolutionized the music of the theater 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.
