About

Vivaldi’s sacred music occupies a place of honour in his vast output, dovetailing passages of great tenderness and sombre beauty, rich in cantabile expressiveness, with highly operatic movements of colourful and exciting virtuosity.

Volume 3 of the complete sacred music features the final and expanded version of Vivaldi’s G minor setting of the Magnificat, his setting of the Vespers Psalm 126, Nisi Dominus, with its strongly characterized instrumental accompaniment, and the dramatic yet poignant Roman motet, In furore iustissimae irae (In the fury of most righteous anger Thou showest thy divine power).

The period-instrument Aradia Ensemble under the expert direction of Kevin Mallon are building an excellent reputation for themselves in the early music field…. Mallon’s Toronto-based ensemble sound on their best form providing beautiful smooth playing, that is fresh, bright and immediate. The liner notes from regular Naxos author Keith Anderson are of the highest quality.” MusicWeb International on 8.557852 (Vol.2)
