From the third act of Vivaldi's opera La Fida Ninfa, this triumphant chorus in 3/4 is built upon solid 3-part choral writing. An optional flute duet, timpani part, and featured small ensemble in the B section add interest to Dr. Liebergen's joyful arrangement. Characteristic harmonies, clear choral phrasing, and appropriate vocal ranges make this Baroque masterwork easy to teach (and learn).
