Monteverdi: ‘The Other Vespers’
In 1640, at the end of his life, Monteverdi published a collection of church music that hadn’t been contained in his famous ‘1610’ Vespers. From these wonderful pieces, singers, cornetts and sackbuts, early baroque violins, theorbos and organ combine to recreate a fabulous Vespers service from baroque Venice, which also includes the grand Magnificat in 14 parts by his famous predecessor Giovanni Gabrieli.
