Although Claudio Monteverdi did enjoy considerable success at the court of Mantua, he yearned for a new challenge. He therefore sent a collection of Vesper psalms to Pope Paul V in the hope of gaining a position in Rome. Ultimately, although the job would pass him by, his Maria Vespers is now considered one of Baroque's absolute crown jewels. In his own unique way, he manages to brilliantly combine Renaissance polyphony with the expressive melodic lines of a burgeoning Baroque era. The Capella Mediterranea and the Choeur de Chambre de Namur are perfectly in tune with each other and, under the spirited direction of Leonardo García Alarcón, demonstrate how this spiritual masterpiece can touch you to the core, even beyond any divine walls.
