Venice: city of music and loss

Inalto performs music from the time of the plague in Renaissance Venice, including works by Monteverdi, Bassano and Gabrieli.

Inalto performs music from the time of the plague in Renaissance Venice, including works by Monteverdi, Bassano and Gabrieli. In the 1570s, Venice was a crossing point, a place of east meets west and a celebration of life, colour and the flourishing arts. But it was also a time of plague and of immense, terrible loss. Inalto lead us through the shadowy city and a gamut of emotions, including the constant, plaintive cry of "I have sinned": Domine Deus meus peccavi by Giovanni Rovetta.
