Notes and Editorial Reviews

First of all, this is not the same package as the Philips box of Vivaldi sacred music. Missing is the oratorio Juditha Triumphans, as well as the disc containing the Stabat Mater. It’s very odd. Beyond that, these are really attractive performances with a top-notch range of soloists (Sally Burgess, Felicity Lott, Ann Murray, Birgit Finnilä, Jochen Kowalski, Anthony Rolfe-Johnson, Robert Holl and others). You won’t find a breezier, more enlivening version of the Gloria anywhere, certainly not on period instruments. So there’s no problem in recommending this wholeheartedly—just don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re getting the “complete” Philips box (which runs to 10 discs as opposed to seven here).
