The entire concert is dedicated to the music of Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643). From his large output a selection of sacred works, madrigals and opera choruses will be performed. Examples are: Adoramus Te, Ave Maria, Cantate Domino, L’Orfeo (excerpts) and many more. Also his most famous solo piece, Lasciate Mi Morire, is on the program. The chorus and soloists are accompanied by harpsichord and – for some pieces – classical guitar.
