Robert King and his Consort did it again ! As in the previous releases of the Sacred Music Edition, it can be said, with no fear, that he reached the top..... The solists are flawless, the chorus is great, the orchestra is magnificent, the sound quality is perfect...and the overall performance is amazing ! The only "but" of this album, is that historycaly, there are two versions of the Vagaus aria "Matrona Inimica", both from Vivaldi's hand, and only one is presented here...A small detail, but that was not left aside by "the Old" Ristenpart in his insuperable performance of this work, unfortunaly, not available anymore.... Vivaldi's only remaining Oratorio is not perfect, too many solo Arias for just a few multiple Arias, and just 5 choruses.....But it still is a Masterwork from the "Prette Rosso". And the arrangement of his RV555 concerto initial movements, as the introduction of the work, was a great idea ! Congratulations to Mr. King !
