Rachmaninov: Liturgy of St John Chrysostom
Writing to a friend Rachmaninov said of the work .........
"I have been thinking about the Liturgy for a long time and for a long time I strove to write it. I started to work on it somehow by chance and then suddenly became fascinated with it. And then I finished it very quickly. Not for a long time have I written anything with such pleasure."
Vivaldi: Gloria: This is the better-known setting of the Gloria, simply known as the Vivaldi "Gloria" due to its outstanding popularity. Probably written around 1715.
