Miserere Mei Deus for 2 choirs

Leo: Miserere mei Deus: quoniam in te confidit
Forces: SATB & continuo

Source: BL Egerton MS 2466

The title page describes this work as being written for the Capella Reale di Napoli in 1744 (the year of Leo's death). It is not the Psalm 50 but the gradual and tract versicle for Ash Wednesday (in 1744). Divided into three sections: Miserere mei Deus, Misit de cælo (the gradual for Ash Wednesday in 1744) and Adjuva nos, Deus salutaris noster (the tract versicle for Ash Wednesday in 1744) there is real beauty in its simplicity. See also the Misereris omnium, Domine which is the 1744 introit for Ash Wednesday.

This is the first piece in a collection of music for Ash Wednesday and Holy Week, written for the Royal Chapel, Naples in 1744 (the year of Leo's death). In four sections, the work provides the introit, gradual and tract for Ash Wednesday in a sublime polyphonic setting - much beautiful harmonic movement. A stunning work.

Written in 1745 for the Ospedaletto, it appears to have been reworked at a later date for SSAB coro, a format more characteristic of earlier works for the Pietà. This version follows the original SSAA coro version in all respects.
