Robert King and his consort have again distinguished themselves with this, the penultimate disc of his highly-acclaimed series of Vivaldi’s complete sacred music. Recorded here are a collection of radiant settings: The magnificent Laudate pueri (RV602) and an inventive reorchestration featuring Rachel Brown on flute (RV602a); the Salve Regina (RV618) with motifs creatively modified from one of Vivaldi’s violin concertos (RV319); the exuberant Ascende laeta (RV635) and the beautiful hymn setting of Gaude mater Ecclesia (RV613) and motet Vos aurae per Montes (RV634).

Ingeniously, Robert King has again selected a cast of soloists as dazzling as this repertoire, with an ensemble that reads like the current ‘Who’s Who’ of ‘must-haves’ from the performance world of Baroque. Carolyn Sampson, Susan Gritton and Nathalie Stutzmann have all adorned previous discs in this series; Joanne Lunn and Joyce DiDonato are newcomers, both to the series and to Hyperion.
