Music Theatina, 3. Lucca, 2006. Oblong, 32.5 x 24.5 cm, xlvii, 48 pp, audio CD. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score issued on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. A sacred motet in Latin for soprano, instruments and continuo, with two arias, a recitative and a final Alleluia, EXULTATE, JUBILATE was composed specifically for the feast day of the Regular Theatine Clerics, and first performed on January 17, 1773. The work was specifically written for the famous castrato Venanzio Rauzzini—Mozart's "leading man" in the opera Lucio Silla being performed at that time in Milan—and the virtuosity of the piece with florid coloratura style gives us a glimpse of Rauzzini’s abilities. It combines the aria and recitative style of opera seria with the 3-part form of the Italian symphony. Introduction in It-Eng-Ger. Includes CD audio recording featuring Mariella Devia and the Cappella Musicale Theatina under the direction of Flavio Colusso. Handsome binding that replicates the original.
