Dixit Dominus, G. F. Handel

Gloria, A. Vivaldi

We begin our journey with a work Handel composed during his sojourn among the never ending chimes of Roman campanili, then on to the Venetian canals, where Vivaldi wrote in the shadow of the towering San Marco belfry. Our finale is a sublime example of tintinnabuli, Arvo Pärt's compositional technique in which he transforms the conventions of chant into a contemporary idiom that is nothing short of revolutionary.
