Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers

Celebrating its 400th anniversary this year. New to me this morning.

“It’s just one of the great pieces because it represents the epitome of the best of Renaissance music and the most incredible part of all the great changes that came in with Baroque music, all in one package.”

—Gwendolyn Toth, founder and artistic director of ARTEK early music ensemble in NYC

“From 1600 to 1760, the vogue was Baroque
and the folks who composed were Monteverdi,
Lully, Schütz, and Purcell,
Scarlatti and Handel and Bach.”
