Baroque era composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) is not as well known for his sacred choral music as his infinitely popular Four Seasons or many of those 500 concertos he wrote, but he should be. That old joke about those concertos -- he wrote the same concerto 500 times -- leaves out the obvious punch line: that every one of the 500 was of the utmost quality. It's the same with his sacred choral music. You can search for weeks to find a dog among his creations...and still be searching.

I thought I'd found every extant version of his wonderful Domine ad adjuvandum me until I chanced upon this collection during an Internet search of the title. This little ASV collection (I finally was sharp enough to figure out that means Academy Sound and Vision, which is printed on the back case) didn't look like it could stand up to heavy hitters like the collections led by now-imprisoned Robert King, Kevin Mallon, and, in days past, the unimpeachable Vittorio Negri, whose set still surpasses either of the more modern collections. The last great recording of the Domine I found was by some Estonians on the Carus label (still available ASIN: B000065DW3), but this one tops even that mighty challengers.

What makes this CD great, first, is its program. Eschewing the evergreen Gloria for reasons explained later, Englishman Jeffrey Skidmore and his Ex Cathedra Chamber Choir and Baroque Orchestra programmed four of Vivaldi's most magnificent works of sacred choral art: Domine ad adjudvandum me, Beatus Vir, Stabat Mater and Magnificat. Skidmore, a specialist in period performance that put together the singers and orchestra that perform here, calls this Vivaldi's "Vespers." Pardon me but I didn't know what that meant.
