About

This release contains two of Vivaldi’s most famous sacred works, the Gloria and the Magnificat.

Vivaldi’s Gloria (RV589) is one of the most popular choral works ever written and performed, by both professionals and amateurs alike. Its jubilant mood, beautiful arias and festive orchestral accompinament fully justify its fame.

The darker Magnificat in G minor is a superb, mature work, expressing Maria’s feeling of wonder and devotion in concertante solo movements to string accompaniment.

These are excellent performances in Historical Practice style by the elite group from Germany, the Virtuosi Saxoniae, led by trumpet virtuoso Ludwig Güttler.

Booklet contains liner notes and full sung texts.
