“Hor che’l ciel e la terra” for Twenty-Four-Voice Chorus and Four Percussionists is a “reimagining” of the second work in Claudio Monteverdi’s eighth book of madrigals, Madrigali guerrieri ed amorosi (Madrigals of War and Love), published in 1638. The original is a setting of a sonnet by Petrarch for six voices, two violins and continuo and is unquestionably one of Monteverdi’s greatest masterpieces.
