Monteverdi: Selva morale e spiritual, Vol.I - The Sixteen, Harry Christophers

Without doubt, Monteverdi was the greatest of the early baroque European composers. He revolutionised the music of the theatre 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. Over the next few years, Coro intends to record the complete publication with a variety of forces. His much performed Beatus vir is a mere appetiser for this delightful yet thrilling music.

Gramophone magazine said of COR 16066  "These fresh, spontaneous and vivacious performances are revelatory. Not only is the choral singing wonderfully clear, perfectly enunciated, beautifully phrased and impeccably tuned, but also the orchestral playing - an aspect too often relegated to auto-pilot in this repertoire - is brilliantly alert, bold and lyrical."

               Gramophone Recommends

 

"The Sixteen embark on a survey of Monteverdi’s late spiritual collection"  "...This promises to be a series well worth collecting."

David Vickers

Gramophone - December 2010

        "Choral & Song Choice"

"Switches between rhythms are presented with flair and daring"    Performance *****      Recording *****

Anthony Pryer

BBC Music Magazine - Christmas - 2010

"This is a fantastic initial selection from Monteverdi’s multifarious 1640/1641 collection. The eight voices are all beautiful and agile, and the ensemble is top-notch (a special mention to the instrumentalists here),  ... if the promised following volumes live up to the quality of this initial disc, don’t hesitate to buy the lot."   *****
