Handel Dixit Dominus (30’)
Handel Overture, Grand Chorus: The Lord Our Enemy Has Slain from Esther (16’)
Vivaldi Gloria in D major RV 589 (25’)
Associate artists, The Sixteen bring a programme of popular Baroque choral pieces. Vivaldi’s Gloria has long been a favourite work – a fruit of his long association with an orphanage in Venice which offered young women a musical training. Before Handel came to England in 1710, he spent four years in Rome, learning the Italian style. His vigorous and inventive Dixit Dominus stems from that period of study.
Harry Christophers and Eamonn Dougan introduce the work of Genesis Sixteen, including live music performed by the young choral ensemble.
