The Monteverdi Choir travels to Venice to pay homage to Monteverdi and the final years of his life, which he spent as Maestro di Cappella at the Basilica San Marco. They perform a programme of sacred music at the Basilica dei Frari, the church where Monteverdi is buried. Works from the composer's Selva Morale collection (including the beloved Beatus vir) and his late Messa quattro voci (Mass for four voices) bloom in this wonderful venue, which is also home to artistic masterpieces by Titian, Donatello and Bellini.
