"The cornetti and trombones sound majestic, but it is the clarity, tonal purity and vivid diction of the vocal soloists and ensemble that make this a triumph.”
- The Sunday Times

"By some marvellous trick of musical alchemy, Rinaldo Alessandrini and Concerto Italiano conjure up an account of Monteverdi’s Vespers that presents this familiar work as if it were a completely new discovery. The freshness of their performance goes beyond considerations of scholarship and authenticity to reach the essential, life-enhancing spirit of the music, which here calls out to the listener with evangelical force."
- Classic FM

Unanimously recognized as one of the leading interpreters of Monteverdi, Rinaldo Alessandrini's recordings have become standard references. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of his orchestra Concerto Italiano, Rinaldo returns to his preferred composer creating, in the magnificent Basilica of Mantova, an imaginative Vespers service for San Marco assembled from various parts of the Selva Morale. This album spent three weeks on the UK classical charts upon its release in the summer of 2014.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
