This was the question that Salesian Fathers running a boarding school were asking in 1929 when they discovered a bunch of old music in boxes in their storage. Thus began the rediscovery of a virtually forgotten Italian Baroque composer, priest, and virtuoso violinist, Antonio Vivaldi.

His manuscripts continue to resurface.
