Pieta , pity in Italian, often brings to mind the characteristic Easter image of the dead Christ held by his mother. Also, the eponymous institution in Venice where Vivaldi taught his orphans, famous thougout Europe for their vocal and instrumental skills. Much of his music for voices was written for these girls, including the famous Gloria but usually these are performed today by mixed choirs. Hearing them in their original form reveals a fascinating and beautiful sonority.

With hundreds of similar convents around Europe, many possessing fine choirs for liturgical use, there is a large body of sacred works ready to be restored to their intended voices.

In our concert we play instrumental music and pieces for women's voices with instruments written for the period leading up to Easter.
