Jommelli, Niccolò (1714-1774)



Passione: Agonia di Cristo

Alto, tenor, bass, SATB, solo fagotto, two violoncelli, contrabass


This work has been mistakenly attributed to Jommelli. It was more probably written by Niccolò Zingarelli (1,2). The instrumental style suggests that it was almost certainly written after Jommelli

died in 1774. See Zingarelli listing for details of manuscript source, recording and YouTube link.
