Vocalist - Baritone, Symphony Pops
Vivaldi: Gloria; Bach: Magnificat
Released: December 16, 2008
Catalog Num: TLC 80651
This new CD, Boston Baroque's sixteenth for Telarc, couples two of the Baroque era's most popular shorter choral works - both of them in D Major! They are nicely contrasted. Vivaldi's Gloria is characterized by its Italian warmth, fluidity, and bouncy personality, while the Bach is more formal, architectural, and more emotionally and texturally varied. The Magnificat contains one of the era's most common musical puns: at the end of the work, when the chorus sings "Sicut erat in principio," ("As it was in the beginning"), Bach reprises the music heard at the very beginning of the Magnificat.
