This wonderful complete recording of Monteverdi's Selva Morale deserves a place in your CD collection!
I approached this recording with some caution - I was less impressed with the Cantus Cölln / Concerto Palatino recording of Schütz' Psalmen Davids - which I felt was a little lifeless. I was, however, overjoyed by this new recording. The singing, playing and interpretations are superb throughout this collection.
I have found that I enjoy listening to a few tracks from this recording as much as I enjoy playing the entire collection (you've got to have some time up your sleave for this!).
If you love Monteverdi and, let's face it, who doesn't?! - then this excellent and exciting recording is for you!

For once I'm daunted by the task of reviewing this stunning performance of one of the greatest monuments of music. I'm tempted just to say BUY IT AND LIVE! But I'll try to gather my thoughts, after having listened to the 3-CD set several times with increasing admiration.

Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) began to prepare his "soul" for death around 1630, gradually turning over his duties at St. Mark's to his students. It was the proper thing to do for a man his age in that age of ever-present mortality. The plague had taken 50,000 victims in Venice that winter. Monteverdi's musical productivity was on the wane. In 1632, he took holy orders as a priest, again a common step for a man confronting the final judgment.

But then, over the next decade-plus, Monteverdi produced two of the greatest operas of all time, his Ottavo Libro of madrigals, and the compendium of his vocal music that he titled Selva Morale e Spirituale - The Moral and Spiritual Forest. The dates of composition of the 37 pieces in the collection are mostly unknown; certainly some of them were from earlier stages of his life, and some were sparklingly new. Monteverdi always retained the option to write in the "first practice" style of Renaissance polyphony one day, and the "second practice" of Baroque basso continuo the next. Selva was not intended to be performed as a unified, sequential program of music. Four-hour concert programs were not yet in fashion in 1641, when Selva was published. The pieces are in fact quite miscellaneous. Konrad Junghaenal has addressed this problem by re-ordered the items of Selva into three concerts - 3 CDs. The first and third CDs are ordered as Vespers services, using roughly the liturgical order of the great and famous Vespers of 1610.

UPDATE: Finally this has been reissued. Available as Monteverdi: Selva morale for around $15.

Here's a piece of music that you can place beside Bach's B Minor Mass. Each composer strives to reveal God through his music. Bach shows us God the almighty. Monteverdi shows us that God is pure love, resulting in a far more intimate and warm musical experience.

This performance is superb.

I was hunting for one particular piece but the total is far more gratifying. Subperb vocals and nice athmosphere.

It's only drawback is that it is too short :-)

regards

Chris
