Vol. 36 – Vivaldi Gloria / Concerto Italiano – Rinaldo Alessandrini, direction
Available on : see links
Ostro picta, armata spina RV642 Gloria RV589
Sara MINGARDO, contralto Concerto Italiano
Rinaldo ALESSANDRINI, conductor
Of the two settings of the Gloria found on this recording, the RV 588 is the lesser known. The highpoint of this piece, which may be the earlier of the two Glorias, is the beautiful cascading lines in the ‘Et in terra pax’ movement. The 589 is one of the most frequently performed choral works of Vivaldi today.
