New performance of Vivaldi’s GloriaA standing ovation greeted the finale of Vivaldi’s Gloria when it was performed in Tavira in May by the combined choirs of Coro dos Amigos and Coro AMT. It is a magnificent and throughly enjoyable 12-part work that always goes down well with audiences, and the two choirs made an excellent job of it.

Vivaldi wrote three versions of the Gloria hymn, but one of them was so outstanding and so popular that it has become known as 'the' Vivaldi Gloria. In fact the first section (there are twelve in all) is so popular that it has even found its way into films: Shine in 1996, and The Hunter in 2011.
