This week we're looking at one of the masterpieces of the Renaissance/Baroque period, Monteverdi's Vespers! We'll explore the historical context behind the piece, Monteverdi's life story, and the debates over what music should be that rocked the late 1500's and early 1600's. And then of course, we'll do a full analysis of the Vespers, from its ecstatic opening to its glorious ending. This episode was sponsored by Errol using Patreon.
