St Martin’s Autumn Choral Concerts

Vivaldi Magnificat: Music for Advent

Online Access


With December on the horizon, enjoy this early Christmas present of some of the finest Baroque choral music ever written. J.S.Bach’s cantata Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland was written for Advent Sunday in 1714, and sits alongside works by Heinrich Schütz, Vivaldi, Monteverdi and Isabella Leonarda – one of the most prolific female composers of the period.
