Description: Setting only the Kyrie and Gloria, Pergolesi's 1734 mass for two choirs and two orchestras is one of only two authentic such works by him. Lasting some 30 minutes, its modernity of style especially stands out in comparison to Scarlatti's very conservative work of 1707. Concerto Italiano; Rinaldo Alessandrini.
