Notes & Reviews:

Sammartini had a long and active musical career, working as "maestro di cappella" or organist in as many as ten different churches, yet surprisingly few of his sacred compositions survive. The sacred cantatas 'Della Passione di Gesu Cristo' and 'L'addolorata Divina Madre' (1759) feature three soloists and were first performed in the church of San Fedele in Milan. Much like the cantata 'Il pianto degli Angeli della Pace', vocal texture is largely dominated by a typically Italianate melodiousness and virtuosity, while the orchestral writing is full of daring harmonies, sparkling themes, and an inexhaustible wealth of ideas. The sacred cantatas 'Maria Addolorata' and 'Il pianto di San Pietro' are available on Naxos 8557431.
