Claudio Monteverdi’s vocal works evoke all the mystery and magic of Venice—labyrinthian canals, splendid gold mosaics, ageless bridges, and the light on the piazza at Vesper’s chime. Centuries-old Latin religious texts take on all the thrill and opulence of Monteverdi's Venice—bold, bravura music to inspire, dazzle, and enthrall.
