Info for Claudio Monteverdi: Vespro di Natale / Christmas Vespers



Venetian Christmas: The Vespro veneziano that Andrea Marcon has assembled for the present release is inspired by the resplendent sounds of the music that was performed at the great Christmas Vespers in St. Mark’s in the presence of the foremost dignitaries of La Serenissima and a large audience of aristocrats and visitors from the whole of Europe. This reconstruction features works from various printed anthologies of works by Monteverdi and other composers from this time and presents the sort of Vespers that might have been heard in Venice over the Christmas period during the long incumbency of “il divino Claudio” as maestro di cappella at St Mark’s.

LA CETRA, renowned early music choir and orchestra based in Basel (Switzerland), are accompanied by a very special organ for this recording which shaped their way of singing and playing, intensifying the affects, the chiaroscuro, the harmonic tension and the dynamic palette, producing a surprisingly modern, majestic, bright and vivid sound-image of the music of Monteverdi and the Venetian 17th century.
