Gloria in D, Antonio Vivaldi, RV 589

(1708)
   Well-known setting of the Gloria, an ordinary prayer of the Roman Catholic mass. The scoring calls for two soprano soloists and one alto, a fourvoiced choir, and an orchestra of two flutes, oboe, oboe d’amore, bassoon, three trumpets, timpani, organ, and continuo. Vivaldi composed the Gloria in the manner of a "Neapolitan" or cantata mass, with the text segmented into 12 self-contained movements, all together requiring about one half hour to perform. The solo arias are in the operatic style of the high Baroque; the choral textures range from solemn homophony to a concluding double fugue.
