Antonio Vivaldi: Gloria

Antonio Vivaldi: Gloria

Vivaldi’s setting of the Gloria has been a long-time favorite in modern times, especially around the Holiday season. He likely composed the work in 1716 as a way of celebrating the victory against the Turks by Vienna and other allies. It’s a wonderfully sunny work, with distinctive melodies and rhythms, and serves to showcase Vivaldi’s genius.
