Niccolò Jommelli: Requiem

In the 1750s, Niccolò Jommelli was considered one of the foremost composers of the time. His requiem mass would become the most frequently performed work in its genre in Europe. In this particularly gripping work for vocal ensemble, strings and basso continuo, Jommelli shows masterful skill in reconciling the lessons of Baroque counterpoint with the early Classical desire for transparency and elegance. The same applies to his Miserere, a setting of Psalm 51 written in 1759, which was traditionally sung, for example, during the procession that preceded a funeral service.
