It is often overlooked that Antonio Vivaldi was not only skilled at composing instrumental music, but that he also experimented with long-established forms of sacred vocal music with equal sensitivity and enjoyment. The publication of a critical edition of his less well-known Credo RV 592 makes one of these works available to a wider public. Credo - Credo - Credo; almost every musical section begins with this devout confession, thus breaking through the grammatical structure of a long-established text; perhaps this was an entirely personal confession of faith, not only of the red-haired priest (Il Prete Rosso), as Vivaldi was known, but also a reminder that despite a well-established structure, not everything is predestined.
