He scored his best known [ according to whom? The concise work is well suited for use in vesper services. He composed settings of the Magnificat canticle, a regular part of vesper services. This version became known as RV While Vivaldi assigned two choirs, with instructions in the choral movements to use one or the other or both, it remains monochoral music.

Their names were noted in the score. Vivaldi structured the Magnificat, RV , in nine movements , eight for the text of the canticle Luke and the conclusion for the doxology.

Set in G minor , it is scored for two soprano soloists, alto and tenor soloists, SATB choir, violin I and II, viola , and basso continuo , such as cello and a keyboard instrument. The following table shows the title, voices, tempo marking, time , key and text source for the nine movements. A performance requires approximately 15 minutes. Vivaldi interpreted each verse of the Magnificat canticle with different musical material but kept the work concise.

The first movement expresses the magnification, " Magnificat anima mea Dominum " My soul magnifies the Lord , with a striking upward chromatic passage in slow tempo. In the second movement, three passages of the verse are given to different solo voices in an aria a tre. The third movement, " Et misericordia ejus ", speaks of the mercy of the Lord for all who fear him. Both mercy and fear are expressed in a dense tecture of imitative music, with chromatic lines and leaps of minor sixths and major sevenths , called "anguished intervals".

The fourth movement, " Fecit potentiam " He exerts power , is a fast, powerful choral movement. The next verse, " Deposuit potentes ", describes how the mighty are thrown from their seats while the humble are exalted. Vivaldi expresses it in graphically dramatic unison lines of the choir. In the sixth movement, " Esurientes implevit bonis ", a duet of sopranos, often in parallel lines, illustrates how the hungry are filled with good things, on an ostinato figure in the bass line.

The seventh movement, " Suscepit Israel ", is a short chorale movement saying that the Lord sustains Israel, adding in a faster middle section " Recordatus misericordiae suae " remembering his mercy. The eighth movement, " Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros " As He has promised our fathers , is a cheerful trio for three soloists and two obbligato oboes.

The final movement adds the traditional doxology on the biblical text " Gloria Patri " Glory to the Father. The music recalls the beginning of the first movement, with a long chromatic melisma on " sancto " holy. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Musical compositions by Antonio Vivaldi.
