Soprano Carolyn Sampson and countertenor Tim Mead join Arcangelo, under the direction of Jonathan Cohen, for a program comprising music of three leading Baroque composers: Handel, Vivaldi, and Bach. Along with instrumental works, we’ll hear Handel’s Latin motet, written in the 1720s, an admired example of his luscious vocal writing, Vivaldi’s cantata on an Arcadian theme, and Bach’s parody motet of Pergolesi’s celebrated Stabat Mater.
