Description
An astonishingly prolific composer of operas, the Neapolitan Nicola Antonio Porpora (1686–1768) was also a gifted teacher; his pupils included Joseph Haydn and the castrato Farinelli. Much of Porpora's posthumous reputation, however, rests on his ethereal 1754 Passio—a series of duets for sopranos and baritone, backed by the somewhat unusual pairing of cello and organ, with a Latin text based on the crucifixion of Christ. Two of the instrumental passages appear here in their later harpsichord adaptations by Muzio Clemente. A truly transcendent Miserere by an anonymous contemporary of Porpora's is also included on this disc.
