Vivaldi Worklist (Sacred Music)
Downloadable PDF accompanying the Hyperion Records page (linked above) - notes by Michael Talbot, written in 1997, whose 1995 book on the Sacred Vocal Music of Antonio Vivaldi is noted - gives a brief but interesting structural analysis of the work (pp.3-4) (and also mentions RV. 597 - also recorded on the same CD, part of a complete edition of Vivaldi's surviving sacred music ; RV. 599 - lost ; and RV. 795. RV. 599 is described as the lost original template of RV. 597 and 795.) - Schissel
