Description: This edifying work from 1736, typical of the oratorios produced during the Counter-Reformation, presents the faithful with an imaginary meeting of Mary Magdalene, King David and St Peter at the Tomb of Christ. The intensity of the musical language and the pushing of limits in performance are typical of Zelenka’s late style. No texts. Collegum Vocale 1704, Collegium 1704; Václav Luks.
