Virtuoso Baroque includes the following exciting works for choir and a small Baroque orchestra of strings, cornetti and sackbuts. These pieces display the best in elegance and virtuosity of Baroque choral, solo and orchestral compositions.
Handel’s Dixit Dominus: One of Handel’s most challenging choral pieces.
Antonio Vivaldi's Gloria - his best-known choral work.
Mondonville’s Dominus regnavit (Psalm 92): French Baroque with ravishingly beautiful solos and wildly virtuosic choral writing.
