Armonico Consort

Vivaldi and Scarlatti

Vivaldi's Gloria, Scarlatti's Dixit Dominus & Messa

Vivaldi and Scarlatti

Join us for an evening of glorious music, performed by the Armonico Consort and directed by Christopher Monks, from the Baroque era, featuring the works of two Italian masters: Antonio Vivaldi and Francesco Scarlatti. You will hear the famous Gloria by Vivaldi, a joyful and festive setting of the hymn that praises God in the highest.

This masterpiece is full of catchy melodies, lively rhythms, and expressive contrasts, making it one of the most popular choral works of all time. You will also discover the lesser-known but equally brilliant music of Francesco Scarlatti who’s writing has been described as ‘totally awesome’. Francesco was a talented violinist and composer who worked in Naples, London, and Dublin. His music is rich in harmony, texture, and emotion, reflecting his diverse musical influences and experiences.

The two works by Francesco Scarlatti are for 16 voices, divided into four choirs engaging in all sorts of vocal acrobatics, with a 5-part instrumental accompaniment.

Pre-Concert Talk at 7.00pm written by Dr Geoffrey Webber of Gresham College, given by a member of the Armonico Consort.
