I don't quite have seven hours today, unfortunately. I've found those same three recordings on Apple Music. Are you able to suggest a few tracks from the Vespro and Madrigal albums?

Thanks!
For the madrigals:
Il Ballo delle Ingrate
Lamento della Ninfa
Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda

I'll see what I've got for the Vespers.

You've moved from Machaut to this in three weeks!
Got to cover 100 recommendations per week and there's simply not enough recommendations to justify spending longer here, despite me finding additional sources purely for this period. I know it's not perfect, and I know you're not happy about it, but as others have said, the time allocation is about right. Blame the music writers, the radio stations, the academic establishments, the websites, not me.

I'm liking Monteverdi. I particularly love that first section of Il Combattimento ('Non schivar...'). Would love to see some live one day.

I also think I can sense that lineage from de la Halle and the troubadour music and instrumentation (those twangy strings), and quite distinct in tamber from the Romantic music I'm most familiar with. But the form certainly fully fits my idea of what opera is, unlike Robin & Marion.

Very interesting listens!

This is pretty:



Marenzio: Madrigal a 5 Voce Libro 9, Solo e Pensoso

La Venexiana
Yes.

Alessandrini's Marenzio is a great favourite of mine.

The sort of polyphony you hear in Italian madrigals has recently inspired some new ideas about how to play J S Bach's keyboard music. I just mention this because it may be useful to think about when you're listening to Bach performance.

I couldn't find anything with all 21 songs. There's quite a few of songs on various, "Lute music", or Dowland compilations.
Yes, it looks to me as though Rooley's the only one. The Rooley is reliably good I think, I mentioned it because I don't think I've ever paid attention to Bk 3 before today, when I saw it on your list. I don't have a very good grasp of Dowland's development.

I've focused on other, new-to-me, Monteverdi material this week but have time today for this:



Monteverdi: Madrigals Book V

Krijn Koetsveld, Le Nuove Musiche
Did you enjoy the selva morale? I've never got very far exploring it in fact, and I'm wondering whether to give it more time. There's a lot of it! I just started to listen to a « best of » recording by Antonio Eros Negri, whose Willaert I quite enjoyed - this sounds rather fun in fact! Maybe in the past I've been listening to the wrong performances.

The other problem Monteverdi for me is Ulysse - which I think has some really memorable things in it but somehow the whole has left not much of an impact. I think I once read that there are some unresolved textual problems with it, maybe that's the root of the problem I have.
