Catalogue Number: 04J044
Reference: 999 988
Description: Although most of Cimarosa's sacred works are youthful ones, this 54-minute piece comes from 1797. Cheerful, quasi-operatic in its arias, its eight sections each begin with an extended orchestral introduction before the soloist and chorus begin their alternation of their texts in the time-honored Neapolitan fashion. Cinzia Rizzone (soprano), Sylvia Rottensteiner (mezzo), Gregory Bonfatti (tenor), I Musici Cantori di Trento, Voci Roveretane, Orchestra Haydn di Bolzano e Trento; Fabio Pirona.
