with Yorkshire Baroque Soloists
Vivaldi: Magnificat (RV 610)
Purcell: String Anthems
Handel: Dixit Dominus
The late 17th century Italian choral tradition, with its exuberant string writing, had a great influence on Vivaldi and Handel. The latter went to Italy specifically to study with Alessandro Scarlatti and Corelli. Vivaldi’s concise setting of the Magnificat for chorus and soloists contains all the colour and imagination you would expect. The Italian and French styles were brought together on English soil by Purcell in his anthems for choir and strings, many of which were written for the Chapel Royal. Handel’s vivid setting of Dixit Dominus, a direct outcome of his Italian studies, is one of his most impressive choral compositions. It is also a YBC favourite – originally planned for a concert in 2020 and now brought to you in Spring 2023!
