Joining a renowned team of Italian composers is the youthful George Handel, who during his triumphant years in Rome, wrote one of the great choral virtuoso masterworks, Dixit Dominus, an Italian-style psalm setting in eight large movements accompanied by string orchestra. Among a group of Italian Renaissance works for a cappella choir, the Singers will showcase the celebrated Miserere by Gregorio Allegri, with its famous vocal embellishments written for the Sistine Chapel, then jealously guarded by the Vatican for centuries! Michael Schulte and his string orchestra will entertain us further with a lively Concerto in D minor by Antonio Vivaldi (op. 3, no. 11), and two movements from Intermezzi Goldoniani by Enrico Bossi.
