Vivaldi wrote many Vesper Services for the Virgin but none of them survive completely intact. This reconstruction is magnificent. It is grand, opulent and highly refined. The instrumental interludes and the Antiphonies are especially notable. This is precisely because in the case of the Antiphonies Alessandrini has "re-shaped" the antique Gregorian chant melodies of the Antiphonies in the form of "ariette", for which there is evidence of such a new style being used in Vivaldi's day.
Alessandrini has however re-written them in a style older than that of Vivaldi. This entire reconstruction is very beautiful, highly articulated and elegant. The orchestration of the Magnificat RV a has also been re-written for a double choir and double orchestra to great effect.
The solo singing is exceptional. The psalms which form the body of the service and the other religious works, the Salve Regina ,and the Ave Maria etc.
Gramophone has said that the choir in this recording is under favoured, and that there is a slight fuzzy mechanical "swirling" in the sound. Although that it is true that the choir is not dominantly placed acoustically, it is a relatively minor defect and however I do not notice any "swirling" mechanical sound disturbances in the recording.
Highly recommended. A classic desert island recording. Gracias por su comentario. Lo sentimos, no hemos podido registrar tu voto. Vuelva a intentarlo. Du grand Vivaldi! Astonishing beginning. As you can tell by the praise from other reviewers here, this is music of a very high order - beautifully composed, performed, and recorded. In large part I agree, but am bothered by the numerous coloratura passages.

Allegro CD 2 La Sena festeggiante, RV Sinfonia Madrigali a sei voci, Libro II: No. Magnificat a cinque voci: Magnificat - Et exultavitThe opening Dixit Dominus is breathtaking in its contrapuntal complexities, the closing Magnificat heartrending in its operatic melodies, and the 5 central madrigals gut-wrenching in their harmonic despair. With barely five voices and two instruments of the Concerto Italiano, these works are still enormously affecting even after three centuries/5(5).
