The Vocal Score of the MISERERE by Tommaso Traetta is now Available.

The Miserere, Psalm 50 of the Vulgata, interprets the feelings of repentance of David, King of Israel, guilty of adultery and murder.

Tommaso Traetta, thanks to the unique features of the Female Conservatory of Ospedaletto, had first brought into liturgical music the “virtuous” style without betraying the sacredness of the genre.

This composition presents, as a whole, a great structural balance. The alternation of solo Arias and choral pieces emphasizes the personal and universal sense of sin expressed by the sacred poet and intensely interpreted by the musician with unique adherence to the text.

Available, with a biography of the author and a brief history of the composition in four languages, now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
