None of these splendid eighteenth-century works has appeared in the Festival’s programme before! Vivaldi’s  Dixit Dominus has all the hallmarks of his style, combining energetic choruses with florid solos and duets in the manner of his well-known Gloria, together with the added richness of scoring for double chorus.

Haydn’s ‘Mariazeller’ Mass is a thoroughly festive work, written for a friend who had been elevated to the nobility. The choral works are complemented by Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto no. 2 which, with its four soloists and string orchestra, is one of the most brilliant of all baroque chamber works.
