'Robert King réalise dans chaque pièce une belle progression dynamique, sans aggressivité, avec une pression jubilatoire qui n'oubli jamais le contenu spirituel des textes' (Répertoire, France)

'Performances and recording quality are exemplary' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A rewarding issue, well documented and spaciously recorded' (Gramophone)

'Robert King's revelatory series cannot fail to enhance the status of Vivaldi's choral music. His sparkling attack and consistently fine choice of soloists have revealed unexpected masterpieces' (Classic CD)

'Outstanding performances that have vitality and fervour without sacrificing clarity' (Goldberg, Spain)

'The superlatives flow just as easily as reviews on the previous two discs have done' (Organists' Review)

'Interpretaciónes magnificas' (Ritmo, Spain)

Sacred Music, Vol. 3

The first release in The King's Consort's series of Vivaldi recordings was declared 'Best Vivaldi Recording of 1995' by the Vivaldi Institute in Venice. With this third volume we present five more large-scale choral works, including the rarely heard 'second' Dixit Dominus and two settings of the Beatus vir. RV597 is the famous one and includes the 'antifona' on the words 'Beatus vir' which recurs throughout the work to such great effect.

Domine ad adjuvandum has been justifiably described as Vivaldi's 'most perfect' sacred composition and fully exploits the antiphonal potential of double choirs and orchestras: a work of great panache.
