This stunning recording is a reconstruction of the Christmas Vespers as they may have been heard in St. Mark’s Basilica during the early 17th century. Andrea Marcon has assembled resplendent music that was performed for a large audience of aristocrats and visitors from across Europe. The ablum features works from various printed anthologies of works by Claudio Monteverdi and his contemporaries and presents the sort of Vespers that might have been heard in Venice over the Christmas period.
