Claudio Monteverdi lived during a time where great change occurred as the Renaissance era gave way to the realm of early baroque as he was able to write successful compositions in every vocal genre. Carlo Gesauldo provided a musical style as his troubled mind often expressed itself in his work as his main characteristic features an extravagant text setting of words that translates into various extremes of emotion.
