Monteverdi’s Venetian Vespers of 1641
June 3 and 4, 2023
During Monteverdi’s 30 years as Maestro di Cappella of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, he published only one book of sacred choral music. This single publication, Selva Morale e Spirituali, contains a handful of pieces that Monteverdi chose to represent the very best of his illustrious career. In collaboration with the Kansas City Baroque consortium, we will bring to life for the first time in Kansas City this music of deep faith, infectious charm, and musical virtuosity.
