Organ Recital

Lincoln Cathedral

Vivaldi's Gloria

The Sixteen

7.30pm

Lincoln Cathedral

Vivaldi   Sinfonia from La Dorilla RV 709
Bach      Mass in G major BWV 236
Handel   Overture from Esther (1st version)
Handel   The Lord our enemy has slain from Esther
Vivaldi   Gloria in D major RV 589

The Sixteen choir and orchestra, conducted by Harry Christophers, perform in the stunning nave of Lincoln Cathedral.

The centrepiece of The Sixteen's choir and orchestra tour this season is Vivaldi’s Gloria – one of sacred music’s most uplifting choral works and a joyful hymn of praise with moments ranging from festive brilliance to profound sadness.

Composed in Venice, probably in 1715, for the choir of the Ospedale della Pietà, its wonderfully sunny nature and distinctive melodies and rhythms gives it an immediate and universal appeal. Bach was a fierce admirer of Vivaldi’s work, and his extraordinarily inventive Mass in G major complements the Gloria perfectly.

Tickets: £15 - £30  (Booking Fees Apply)
