Another concert looms. Tonight, as part of the national music festival, a programme of orchestral and choral baroque music. New to me is Albinoni’s Symphony in G and Vivaldi’s Sinfonia in B minor “Al Santo Sepolcro”. The programme is rounded off with two vocal pieces from Vivaldi’s Gloria and Dixit Dominus, respectively. So, a day of rehearsals followed at 7:30 in the church at Champcervon, near Sartilly, Bas Normandie. I’m told we shall perform standing up; very baroque!
