At the dawn of the 17th century, two composers employed by the House of Gonzaga in Mantua signaled the transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque era: Salomone Rossi and Claudio Monteverdi. Freely expressive madrigals with basso continuo imbued with theatricality will be heard alongside Hebrew psalms set to suave polyphony.
