Although he is often identified as a Monteverdi scholar, the majority of Jeffrey Kurtzman’s work has focused on other sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italian sacred music. Organized into three sections, this book provides critical and analytical essays spotlighting the sacred music of Monteverdi and other seventeenth-century composers such as Giovanni Francesco Capello and Palestrina. It investigates issues of performance and surveys Italian liturgical music in its historical context.
