A setting of psalm 115(116) Credidi propter quod locutus sum ego divided into 3 sections: Psalm - Gloria - Sicut erat & amen.

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.

Porpora: De profundis
Forces: soprano & alto solo, SSAA coro, strings & continuo

Source: BL MS Add. 14128 ff 83r - 105r

A substantial setting of the De Profundis in 9 movements, 4 choral (SSAA), 4 solo and one duet, written in 1744 for the Ospedaletto. The soloists are entered in the score as: Bernadetta, Elisabetta Pia, Lauretta (soprani), with Angioletta Moro and Barbara (contralti). As is common in these liturgical settings, Porpora features favoured/most talented students first, the first soprano and alto arias being the most virtuosic.

Porpora: Domine probasti me (Psalm 138/9)
Forces: SSAA coro, strings & continuo

Source: Autograph in BL Add MS 14216

Writen in October of 1745 for the girls of the Ospedaletto this is a continuous setting, i.e. not divided into separate sections other than for the short, fiery Gloria Patri. Similar in style to the other Psalm settings (Credidi Propter, In Exitu Israel, Qui habitat in adjutorium etc.)

Duration would be around 8 minutes and is perfect for a difficult programming spot!

Another single section psalm setting written for the girls of the Ospedaletto in Venice in February of 1744. Launching straight into a rapid word setting and using advanced, and in some moments unusual, harmonic changes. The solo sections are, as usual, virtuosic, the choral writing exciting, but not too difficult to sing.
