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.
