Notes & Reviews:

In 1785, at the height of his career in Vienna, Mozart was commissioned by the Viennese Society of Musicians to write a work for a Lenten benefit concert. Short of time, he recycled the 'Kyrie' and 'Gloria' from his earlier unfinished 'Mass in C Minor' to form part of the oratorio 'Davide penitente'. Drawing upon the psalms of David, both penitential and joyful, this is a work of great beauty, notable for its memorable choruses, exquisite writing for the woodwind and, in particular, the two new solo arias, 'A te, fra tanti affanni' (In you, amid such tribulation) and 'Tra l'oscure ombre funeste' (Amid the dark grievous shadows), both of which begin with a long expressive opening followed by a virtuoso second section.
