    The first concert of our new season focuses on those three masters of the Baroque period, Bach, Handel and Vivaldi.
    Bach's setting of the Magnificat is a splendid ceremonial piece with grand choral gestures and brilliant orchestration,
    contrasted with a selection of solo arias and duets. Handel's Chandos Anthem O praise the Lord with one consent is
    similarly contrasted,
    one of the first works to display his inimitable choral style. Vivaldi is represented by two less
    well-known works, Beatus Vir  for choir and soloists, and one of his many concertos for Strings.
