Product Description

Vespro della Beata Vergine : Vocal Score : (ed. Roche), : Claudio Monteverdi : Jerome Roche : Schott Series : Softcover : Vocal Score : Published by Schott : # ED12602
Vespro della Beata Vergine by : Claudio Monteverdi : Jerome Roche

Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 is a work which has both fascinated and perplexed musicologists and performers for many years. It forms by far the larger part of the composer's first significant publication of sacred music; entitled: 'Of the most blessed virgin a Mass for six voices for church choirs; and Vespers for more voices with several sacred concertos suitable for princely chapels or apartments.' By the time this publication appeared; Monteverdi had been in the service of the Gonzaga court at Mantua for at least 18 years; and he was seeking a change of employment; so that the dedication of the volume to the reigning pope; Paul V; may be interpreted as a form of self-advertisement. Originally issued as an Urtext study score; the edition is based closely on the extant printed source; the set of partbooks published at Venice in 1610; and retains the original note values; key and mensuration signatures.
