The first performance of their concert season, Scholars Baroque Aotearoa perform anthems by Purcell.
Not your typical anthems, these anthems are at times quite long and feature long interludes for string orchestra. They also feature solos, duets, trios, quartets, interspersed with sections sung by the whole choir. Also on this programme is the eternal favourite, Gloria, by Antonio Vivald with all its flare and excitement of the high Italian baroque style. Largely remembered as an orchestral writer, Vivaldi’s choral works are all but forgotten except for the Gloria which is performed by choirs the world over year after year. It has never lost it’s lustre.
