Giovanni Battista Vitali

CANTATA: Per l’incoronazione di Maria Beatrice d’Este a Regina d’Ingliterra il 3 Maggio 1685

Donde avvien che tutt’ebro di vera gioia l’universo

Alto · two violins · viola · basso continuo

edited by Martin Perkins


Nine of Vitali’s cantatas were written for meetings of the Accademia dei Dissonanti, an intellectual talking shop centered around Duke Francesco II's Modenese court. Many of these works are described as ‘accademia’, suggesting that the works were a distinct sub-genre of cantata at this time. Six of these cantatas survive in a single source held in the Biblioteca Estense e Universitaria, Modena (Mus. F. 1261 (1)). The source is a fair copy score from which, presumably, parts were made for the performance. Although the manuscript is undated, the last of the six, ‘Donde avvien che tutt’ebro di vera gioia l’universo’ was written to celebrate the coronation of Maria Beatrice as queen of England in 1685.
