This week's Aria of the Week is "Peccator Videbit" from the Beatus Vir by Antonio Vivaldi. This version is the one written for the Ospedale della Pietà, and is scored for a contralto. In the later version, reworked by Vivaldi, it is instead performed by a tenor. The contralto in this clip is Hilary Summers.
