Vivaldi's Gloria

Robert Hollingworth explores Vivaldi's Gloria, one of the most famous of all baroque choral works, with the BBC Singers and St James' Baroque. Plus a young musicians' workshop.

Robert Hollingworth explores one of the most famous of all baroque choral works - Vivaldi's Gloria in D, RV 589 - often simply refered to as the Vivaldi Gloria, although the composer made more than one setting. Robert conducts the BBC Singers and St James' Baroque in excerpts and a complete performance of the work, which was given in the Maida Vale Studios in November 2008.

The programme also looks at a collaborative project called Gloria Revisited in which Tim Steiner guided nine A-level students from St Marylebone C of E Secondary School and The Greycoat School in Westminster in a series of workshops. The young composers each wrote a movement inspired by Vivaldi's Gloria.
