Monteverdi: Cantate Domino
by The Monteverdi Choir
This composition contains a text conflated from Psalms 95 and 97 (96 and 98), and is another short motet contributed by Monteverdi to the anthology of motets for between one and eight voices. Published in 1620 by his pupil Giulio Cesare Bianchi, it seems to have been aimed at choirs of modest ability and, whether consciously or not, the composer had re-used the phrase 'Cantate et exultate'. That musical sequence had first been used at the end of the madrigal "Ecco mormorar l'onde" in his Second Book of Madrigals (1590) - this may indicate that the motet was written very much earlier than its date of publication.
Conductor: John Eliot Gardiner. Organ: Andrew Davis.
