Vivaldi's Virgins, A Musical Story

Vivaldi's Virgins by Barbara Quick (304 pgs, Harper Collins) is one of the books I got from the First Look Program at HC. It really was an excellent book.

The story is told by Anna Maria dal Violin, one of the elite musicians of the Ospedale della Pieta, the foundling home whose maestro and composer is the ambitious and eccentric "Red Priest" of Venice, Antonio Vivaldi.
