Monteverdi: The Moral and Spiritual Forest

Led by founder and baritone Lionel Meunier, the Gramophone Award–winning Vox Luminis has garnered international acclaim for impeccable performances illuminating the emotional heart of their repertoire. They return to BEMF with a dynamic program of sacred music by Claudio Monteverdi drawn from his Selva morale e spirituale (The Moral and Spiritual Forest). Published late in the composer’s life, this collection is a stylistically varied showcase of Monteverdi’s unequaled liturgical writing from his decades as maestro di cappella of San Marco in Venice.

“Never anything less than sublime.”

—Gramophone
