Selva Morale e Spirituale
The internationally acclaimed Baroque ensemble, led by maestro Rubén Dubrovsky, enchants the audience with Claudio Monteverdi’s “Selva morale e spirituale.” Monteverdi is considered the father of opera, but he also wrote sacral music; in this 1641 work he merged the rhythms of folk music with psalms from the Old Testament. The acoustics of the cathedral and the use of historic instruments such as the theorbo and the zink add to the experience, along with the powerful vocals of soloists Soetkin Elbers, Jakob Huppmann, Jan Petryka, Gerd Kenda and many more.
