Monteverdi: Beatus Vir

Recorded August 2000 at Christ Church Cathedral

musica intima has a long history with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra - including televised performances of Vivaldi’s Gloria for the CBC! For many years, the two organisations collaborated twice a year - Christmas, and a festive performance as part of MusicFest Vancouver. Monteverdi’s ‘Beatus Vir’ - a perennial favourite for its wonderful word-painting and jaunty refrain - dates from one of those MusicFest performances, under guest director Linda Melsted.
