    The Gloria in D Major RV 589 is Vivaldi's most famous sacred work and it is among his most important church music compositions. The Carus edition, the publisher's inaugural music edition, helped considerably to turn this musically impressive and varied work into one of Vivaldi's most popular choral works today. The music and text sections of the Carus edition No. 1 have now been subject to a thorough revision. The music has been newly engraved, and a new Foreword and Critical Report by Uwe Wolf reflect the latest research.

    The Gloria was probably written between 1713 and 1717 for the Ospedale della Pietà, one of the orphanages in Venice where young girls received a thorough musical training. This musically impressive work in the style of a so-called "cantata mass" is divided into 12 sections which vary in scoring, style of setting, key, and emotional content. Vivaldi's mastery is shown in the solemn, sonorous choral movements and equally in the more chamber music-like solo movements.

    Very few alterations have been made to the choral parts, so that this edition can be used in combination with the previous choral score (Carus 40.001/05) without any problems.
