Continuing the series devoted to Vivaldi and his Venetian contemporaries. Today a motet by Vivaldi probably written for one of his pupils at the Ospedale delta Pieta. There are also works by Bonporti, who had much of his music published in Venice, and Benedetto Marcello , a lawyer and councillor in the city. Both men described themselves as ' dilettanti di musica' which in those days simply meant that they composed music for pleasure and not for money.
