Monteverdi and Croce

Monteverdi: Missa in illo tempore
Motets and concertati by Croce and Clinio

Yorkshire Baroque Soloists

Monteverdi’s extraordinary Missa In Illo Tempore, based on the motet by the Flemish composer Nicolas Gombert, is a masterpiece of the six-voice polyphonic style. Published alongside his Vespers of 1610, it is less often performed, but no less indicative of the incredible flowering of music activity in and around late Renaissance Venice. The programme will also feature rarely heard motets and psalms by Giovanni Croce and Teodoro Clinio (specially edited for this concert), showcasing mastery of the Cori Spezzati style favoured by Venetian composers of the age.
