Genius of Venice

Sacred Music by Claudio Monteverdi

Glorious, colourful, evocative music from Monteverdi’s Venice, as might have been heard by visitors attending a service in St Mark’s around 1610. One such visitor, Thomas Coryat, enthused that this was music ‘to ravish and stupefy all those that never heard the like‘, and described the performers as ‘superexcellent’.
