Title: Frederica von Stade & Benjamin Luxon sing Monteverdi - LIVE!

Description: Ulysses gives Penelope a secret sign to prove his true identity: he alone knows that she has a silk coverlet on her bed, woven by her own hands, depicting Diana, and this memory has comforted him in his travels. At last she recognizes him, and a rapturous love-duet is called for: the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and the phoenix has risen from the ashes of Troy; no more torment and sorrow, only gladness and enjoyment, happiness and pleasure.
