Description: These four sacred cantatas by an Italian who spent his career at the Spanish royal court likely date from 1738-50 and season sober piety with dashes of vocal virtuosity while the later violin sonatas (1768 and 1776) retain baroque forms and style; they were created as test pieces for applicants to the royal chapel. Spanish-English texts. Alicia Amo (soprano), Musica Boscareccia.
