Revision as of 10:34, 16 June 2014 by SophieByvik (talk | contribs) (removed 'the' from Folger Consort, moved date to top of intro)

From January 9 to January 10, 2009, Folger Consort performed Gloria: Music of Vivaldi with its introductory movements for soprano and orchestra and complemented by other virtuoso works for Baroque orchestra, choir, and soloists in the magnificent space of the Washington National Cathedral. Antonio Vivaldi's most famous sacred piece, Gloria, is a brilliant example of his inventive, dramatic, and energetic style.
