Dixit Dominus - The Sixteen

The Sixteen: Dixit Dominus


Product Description

The Sixteen adds to its stunning Handel collection with a brand new recording of Dixit Dominus set alongside a little known treasure—Agostino Steffani’s Stabat Mater. Full of virtuosity, vibrant color, and dynamic energy, Handel’s Dixit Dominus is one of his earliest autographed works and captures the Italian style of the period. By comparison, Steffani’s Stabat Mater was one of his last compositions. This work is the most powerful expression of Steffani’s religious fervor and—outside opera—is his largest, most varied, and most heartfelt composition.
