The Sixteen: Vivaldi Gloria

This year's orchestra & choir tour is centred around Vivaldi's Gloria - one of sacred music's most uplifting choral works.
The centrepiece of this season’s choir and orchestra tour is Vivaldi’s Gloria – one of sacred music’s most uplifting choral works and a joyful hymn of praise with moments ranging from festive brilliance to profound sadness. Composed in Venice, probably in 1715, for the choir of the Ospedale della Pietà, its wonderfully sunny nature and distinctive melodies and rhythms gives it an immediate and universal appeal. Bach was a fierce admirer of Vivaldi’s work, and his extraordinarily inventive Mass in G major complements the Gloria perfectly.

Performers: The Sixteen choir & orchestra Harry Christophers conductor

Programme: Vivaldi Sinfonia from La Dorilla RV 709 Bach Mass in G major BWV 236 Handel Overture from Esther (1st version) Handel The Lord our enemy has slain from Esther Vivaldi Gloria in D major RV 589
