Composed by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi in 1736 in the final weeks of Pergolesi’s life. It is scored for soprano and alto soloists, violin I and II, viola and basso continuo (cello and organ).
The work was composed for a Neapolitan confraternity, the Confraternita dei Cavalieri di San Luigi di Palazzo and is one of Pergolesi’s most celebrated sacred works, achieving great popularity after the composer’s death.
