Format: Audio CD
Three of Vivaldi's most beautiful works are brought together on this CD. The bookends, the Gloria and the Magnificat, are well known but the real gem is the middle work, Dixit Dominus for two choirs. The Dixit Dominus draws themes and rythms that are reminiscent of other of Vivaldi's work and fans of the Vivaldi album featuring Cecilia Bartoli and Il Giardino Armonico will appreciate the vocal dexterity required by both of the female soloists. There is a wonderful weaving of the music within and between the two choirs. A quite stunning violin obligato accompanies one of the soloist's tracks.
Unfortunately, this treasure is destined to remain buried owing to the appalling cataloguing by Amazon. It is RV 594 and not RV 564 as shown and the sample track that is supposed to illustrate the Dixit is in fact a track from the Gloria! If you want to hear the real thing, log on to the Amazon.com site. Although there is a misalignment of the tracks, at least our American cousins are showcasing the correct music. Buy it now.

A stunning masterpiece by Vivaldi. The CD is a fantastic recording of this seminal work, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

This is an absolutely beautiful CD featuring the superb "Gloria" and also including "magnificat" and "dixit dominus" all performed by the choir of King's College, Cambridge.

I just love this music, it fills me with wonder whenever I listen, its uplifiting, calming and never fails to boost my mood after a bad day at work!

fabulous recording of this famous piece... or at least... the first gloria is famous.. the rest maybe not so well known.... the choir of king's college are sublime as always.... I bought this as a present for myself as my choir is singing it at christmas and I wanted to hear how it should be done.... wonderfully of course!
