About Orchestra of St. Luke’s
Hear echoes, mass choirs of wind instruments, and more when you experience the unique sonic effects Baroque composers created by placing instruments in various places throughout the concert hall. Handel used strings and two groups of winds in his effervescent concertos, while Vivaldi had violinists echoing the sound of the soloist in his A-Major Concerto. A superb sacred music composer, Vivaldi also reached stunning expressive heights in his two settings of the Salve Regina, a prayer to the Virgin Mary.
