These two works make an obvious and very desirable coupling, being celebratory, liturgical works of the same era by two of the greatest Baroque composers but obviously very different in character: the one, all Venetian brilliance, the other high Germanic seriousness - yet both are intensely soulful and beautiful, with deeply contemplative passages. By chance, both the "period" recording by Hickox and the modern-traditional recording from Marriner were recorded a quarter century ago and both retain their merited place on my shelves, different though they are.

Contrary to a previous reviewer, the Hickox recording is not especially slow at all in comparison with the norm, although there is one instance, the alto solo in the Vivaldi, "Domine Deus, Agnus Dei", where Michael Chance takes half as long again as his female counterpart for Mariner, drawing out the melancholy of the piece. All soloists are uniformly good fr both conductors, although there is a special crystalline radiance in Emma Kirby's soprano compared with the smokier, more sensuous, operatic sound of Barbara Hendricks for Marriner. I am also pleased to report that Ann Murray, a singer whose tone sometimes turned acid in the higher reaches, sounds in finest form, singing with great evenness and expression at brisker speeds than Chance. Finnish bass Jorma Hynninnen is sonorous but rather lugubrious in his solo aria in the Bach and thus I prefer Stephen Varcoe for Hickox there, even though - or perhaps because, in this case - his voice is so light. Both tenors are admirable.

The sound for Marriner is much broader and a little mushier in acoustic whereas Chandos provides a clearer, cleaner, closer perspective but both offer a modern, digital listening experience.

Like so many Classics for Pleasure rejuvenated recordings, this is a bargain not to be missed. Marriner, Hendircks, Murray guarantee quality in a coupling of two of my favorite pieces.

I have been wanting recordings of these works for a while and was pleased to see a version by Sir Neville Marriner.
I would highly recommend this recording and the soloists are superb.

I thought this edition was very good. I am learning this music for a concert and the sound of the voices and orchestra are very good.

I chose these works for the wrong reasons really; when I am writing I need something familiar, uplifting, and calming to listen to.

Just what we needed to help us sing Gloria with our choral society in St Michael's Church Newquay this Christmas.
