Notes & Reviews:

David Bates leads the ensemble La Nuova Musica in a pair of contrasting settings of Psalm 109. Handel's masterful and ambitious HWV 282 was penned in 1707 during a visit to Italy. Vivaldi's vivid and economical RV 807 (his third Dixit Dominus) was long mistakenly attributed to Baldassare Galuppi; it probably dates from the early 1730s. Rounding out the program is Vivaldi's dazzling motet In furore iustissimae irae, featuring soprano Lucy Crowe.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Handel's stunning setting of Psalm 110, from 1707 during his stay in Rome, is now regularly recognized as his first choral masterpiece. Vivaldi's treatment of the Dixit Dominus is the third we have from him. In all, a release that both Handelians and Vivaldians can enjoy.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2013
Bates wisely judges that the pace of the opening chorus [of the Handel] should be dictated by the singers' natural declamation of the line...I particularly appreciated Crowe's gorgeous soft singing.

Classical Music, June 2013
David Bates directs all with liveliness and a fluent feeling for style.
