Files "cleaned" Aug/11 and re-cleaned Jan/14

Antonio Vivaldi

Gloria - RV 589

There are numerous versions of printed scores for Vivaldi's Gloria. Three common ones are the Casella-edited Ricordi score, the Malipiero-edited Ricordi score, and the Everett-edited Oxford score. The Malipiero and Everett versions are quite similar - they differ mainly in the piano reduction accompaniment. The Casella version is somewhat different, having fewer bars (measures) in several of the pieces, as well as a number of significant vocal and accompaniment note changes (though for the most part its accompaniment is much like the Malipiero one).

There is also a more recent Waltons Music version edited by Mason Martens. If I interpret his Preface aright, this is the Casella version with a dozen or so originally-excised bars put back in again.

These Midi Files were originally keyed in using the Everett-Oxford edition, and can be used both with that score and with the Malipiero-Ricordi score; the Casella-Ricordi Files are amended versions of them, using essentially the same piano reduction but with the vocal parts appropriately modified. The Martens Files are further amended by the addition of added bars as shown in the Martens score plus consequential changes.

Here are the available Midi Files for this Work:-
