Lamento della ninfa

MON023.1


This famous piece involves a trio of male singers who introduce and comment upon a young lady who is pained by the contents of a love letter. 
It is the perfect illustration of Monteverdi's power as a theatrical composer, and is given a suitably free performance by soprano Claire Lefilliatre and her colleagues of Le Poème Harmonique.

O viva fiamma

MON012.1
 
The text of this work from Monteverdi's 7th book is almost a litany to the trials and tribulations of love.
It ends appropriately with something akin to a hymn, asking for salvation, or at least recognition.
