  • The Selva Morale e Spirituale (literally Spiritual and moral forest) is a splendid collection of sacred compositions by Monteverdi published in 1640, an anthology of masterpieces of the level of the famous Vespers published in 1610.

    Monteverdi, aged 74, was nearing the end of his life and was offering his sacred music testament, in fact the collection of works he had imposed at Basilica San Marco in Venice. The main pieces of San Marco’s rich liturgy are at the heart of the program: Gloria, Salve Regina, Laudate and of course the magnificent Magnificat!

    William Christie has gathered a score of magnificent soloists; he will be conducting from the harpsichord to honor the beauty of Monteverdi’s art. 30 years after the recording of Selva Morale e Spirituale by the young Arts Florissants, William Christie will close the Monteverdi celebration year by turning to the origins of his passion: masterpieces of sacred music fusing with drama…
