Is the composer from Italia, and if so, is it the Red Priest?

12) Was the composer from Spain?
Perhaps from the Spanish plain?
It's a lovely land, but even so,
the answer to this question is No.

13) From the boot-shaped land did this composer hail?
The land where Spartacus did rise and then fail
to earn freedom for his band of slaves
whose only freedom was found in their graves.

In Italy this compser was born
composing for string and composing for horn
and vocal works, for the ears a feast!
This composer is indeed Vivaldi, the Red Priest.

Composed before Pope Benedict XIII was appointed as the 245th Pope?

In a major scale?

Concerto for violin?

13) In 1724, word College of Cardinals did send,
that Pope Benedict XIII to the Chair did ascend.
For six years in that seat he was sittin',
when the white smoke rose this piece was not written.

14) In a major key Vivaldi did compose
this concerto, lovely as a rose.
15) A tapestry of notes this work does spin,
But, alas, it is not written for violin.

The time has come, the Walrus spoke,
To try to clear the gathering smoke,
and recap the data thus far known,
as to page two this thread has grown.

A work by Vivaldi, that much is clear,
Written after the seventeen hundred and twenty-fourth year.
Before the eighteenth century was halfway past,
This work was put to the pen, at last.

A stringed insturment performs the solo part
of this concerto which warms this poets heart.
Stringed, it is true, but once again,
I must stress that is not a viloin!

I almost missed a clue! How can this be?
It is written in a major key.
I hope this helps clear the readers head,
so they may find this work by the priest in red.

16) Navneeth now wants to know,
If the solo part is played by cello.
That large viol, played with a bow,
I'm afraid the anwer here is no.

17) Is the instrument plucked, with finger or plectrum?
Bignaf asks, to reduce the spectrum
of choices, making it easier to guess.
The answer to his question is yes.

Is the Mandolin Concerto?
Trumpetmaster wants to know.
Written in 1725, that is his guess.
The answer here is a simple Yes.

That concerto is a favourite of mine.
I think the music is really fine.
I have it in my Masterworks set,
(I still haven't listened to the whole set yet!)

And that will conclude this latest 30Q.
Trumpetmaster wins due to Bignaf's clue.
This wasn't the best 30Q so far,
I don't think my rhyming was quite up to par.
