Notes and Editorial Reviews

A flamboyant manifesto of the Baroque revolution. In automn of 1610 Monteverdi dedicated a uxuriant collection of religious music to Pope Paul V, of wich the Vespers of the Blessed Virgin is by far the most prodigious work. A spectacular synthesis of Franco-Flemish polyphony and Italian innovations, this impressive monument imposed itself as the standard-bearer of the Monteverdian revolution. But the real miracle is his ability to reconcile solemnity and suavity with the most genuine fervour A flamboyant manifesto of the Baroque revolution.
