Antonio Vivaldi is usually seen as a composer of brilliant instrumental music, but in the field of vocal music, he left behind not only operas, but also a long series of sacred compositions, a legacy that must not be overlooked. His musical settings of festive psalm texts show Vivaldi to have had the same understanding for the human voice as for instrumental stylisation, and he was capable of using to the fullest all of the possibilities of the human voice, that most perfect of instruments.
