No grooves, as it turns out. It’s all digital now, isn’t it?
A reader passed news to me that La Nuova Musica recorded a newly identified Dixit Dominus (a common first antiphon for Sunday vespers), by Vivaldi. It was previously thought to be by Baldassare Galuppi. Also on the recording Handel’s Dixit Dominus, HWV 232. Also, Vivaldi’s In furore iustissimae irae featuring soprano Lucy Crowe.
It was music like this that made me turn away from Lutheranism when I was a kid.
Here is a really video about making the recording (now on my wishlist). Looks and sounds like original instruments. And they look so young!
For Canada and UK copy LA NUOVA MUSICA and paste it into the search boxes at the bottom of the blog. Easy.
