Misc. Comments

  • Possibly one of the pieces Porpora wrote for the Pietà in Venice, so perhaps a tag for female chorus might be more appropriate.
  • Though Grove Music doesn't list the Dixit Dominus in G specifically, it lists several others, all as "motet", and specifies female voices. Grove's article implies that all the motets were written for the female students at the Pietà.
  • RISM says "There is a staff for a viola-part (clef: C-3), but this has not been filled in (there are, however, a few directions (clef F-3)) to play the bc part"
