Claudio Monteverdi lived in a time of great change, as the vocal polyphony of the Renaissance gave way to the textures of the early Baroque. He harnessed both styles with great skill, sometimes contrasting them in the same work, and wrote successfully in every vocal genre. His contemporary Carlo Gesualdo's vocal music is among the most experimental and expressive of the late Renaissance. This program features sacred and secular motets and madrigals by the two composers.
