Vivaldi's Nulla in mundo pax sincera with One World Symphony

Although Vivaldi was a Catholic priest and a deeply religious person, I believe his sacred motet Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera could resonate with the Dali Lama as deeply as it would Pope Francis. The latin text roughly translates to, "there is no true peace in this world without bitterness" and touches on themes of duality also seen in eastern philosophies. Our earthly existence has forces of turmoil and peace, war and love, darkness and lightness, death and life, winter and spring, all of which we cannot evade or escape. In this lilting aria, Vivaldi paints a perfect juxtaposition of these forces and their interconnectedness. He also makes it clear where his salvation lies, and what gives him hope. I am looking forward to this performance with One World Symphony, reflecting on rebirth, rejuvenation, and where my own salvation lies as we thaw from this long cold winter.
