About

The Sixteen

To celebrate the 450th anniversary of Monteverdi's birth, The Sixteen and Harry Christophers continue their exploration of the composer's Selva morale e spirituale, his vast anthology of sacred works published in Venice between 1640 and 1641.

The programme opens with a dramatic setting of Psalm 112, Beatus vir, and includes the joyful double-choir polyphony of Dixit Dominus and the majestic Gloria for seven voices.
