ROH Recommended Recording

'Alleluia' is the sacred expression of pure joy. On this album Julia Lezhneva explores eighteenth-century solo motets, written for young, extraordinary voices – from dramatic Vivaldi and festive Handel through Mozart's much-adored Exsultate, jubilate to the world-premiere recording of Porpora's In caelo stelle clare. Each work culminates in an exultant 'Alleluia'.

The vocal sensation everyone’s talking about – Russian soprano Julia Lezhneva – makes her Decca solo debut with a celebratory disc of motets, partnered by one of the world’s leading early music ensembles, Il Giardino Armonico, conducted by Giovanni Antonini.
