Ah, I can just feel the music through my bones. These voices sound magnificent! I can imagine it now. Me, Claudio Monteverdi, world famous composer from Italy!
These operas shall mark the beginning of a new era of music. It is the time of baroque! I may need some help though...
Together, Jacopo Peri and I have formed a group of musicians to discuss the arts. The Florentine Camerata will do great work in making the future of music. We just need Italy to hear us.
These violin concertos and choral works shall be wonderful for the church! The music of Antonio Vivaldi must be heard.
These Italian operas are beginning to fall out of fashion. It's time for a change. I wonder if England would like these oratorios, especially Messiah. Hallelujah!
Hmmph! They don't know it yet, but Bach is not to be ignored. My works are masterpieces! I've composed countless pieces. Fugues, concertos, everything! Yes, I do admire what Vivaldi has done. But no one appreciates these cello solos...
