Product Notes

This is the minimalist's Monteverdi Vespers: only eight singers and 11 instrumentalists, no added plainchant or instrumental music to make up a complete Vespers service--just the music Monteverdi published, performed by the minimum possible number of musicians. In fact, Monteverdi most likely composed these pieces for solo voices (as was standard practice in 17th-century Italy), so it's no surprise that the Scholars' performance sounds thoroughly credible. The voices aren't as luscious as those of the famous singers on higher-priced versions, but they have a pure, youthful sound that suits Monteverdi well. Occasional flatness from the sopranos and cornetts aside, the execution is fine; singers and instrumentalists both add some interesting and stylish embellishments. For those on a tight budget, this version would make a fine introduction to this extraordinary work; at the budget price, Monteverdi collectors can gladly add it to their shelves as well, flaws notwithstanding. --Matthew Westphal
