A very special recording and interpretation of the famous Vespers of the Virgin Mary; "Vespro della Beata Vergine": Roberto Zarpellon leads the vocal ensemble "Venice Monteverdi Academy"; his ensemble "Lorenzo da Ponte" and the chorale schola "Reale Corte Armonica Caterina Cornaro" - all of them genuine Italians - in a recording that took place in the church where Monteverdi worked for three decades as Kapellmeister; namely the famous Basilica of San Marco in Venice. As far as music is concerned; this church with its magnificent mosaics and domes as well as its very transparent room acoustics was a place of pilgrimage for musicians and composers from near and far during the Renaissance and Baroque periods; with such illustrious names as Adrian Willaert; the organists Giovanni and Andrea Gabrieli and Monteverdi as maestro di capella.
