Volume 1 of Vivaldi’s complete sacred music features the impressive if less familiar of the two settings of the Gloria, RV 588, the second setting of the vespers psalm Dixit Dominus, and Nulla in mundo pax sincera, used with striking effect in the film Shine. With texts divided between soloists and chorus, both compositions bear all the hallmarks of Vivaldi’s finest choral works: festive brilliance, dramatic changes of mood and texture, and passages of aching melancholy. Conductor Kevin Mallon founded the Aradia Ensemble in 1996, and has already made 20 highly regarded recordings with the group for Naxos.
