In recent decades the sacred music of Claudio Monteverdi has been the subject of different layers of reading some of which, with the exception of the famous Vespro della Beata Vergine, have considered it a lesser part of his production more influenced by the “prima pratica”, that is to say by the use of a more traditional counterpoint. On the contrary, and despite that fact that in modern times it has been obscured by the novelty of the Vespro published in the same edition in 1610, the Missa in illo tempore is one of the testing grounds of the contrapuntal explorations of Monteverdi, where the counterpoint is put at the service of the text, even if in a different manner from the contemporary madrigal style…
