Mariella Devia is an Italian operatic coloratura soprano, well known for performing many roles in the bel canto repertoire. The album also features the Orchestra Filarmonica Marchigiana conducted by Daniele Callegari.

Fone tells us “The motet Exultate, jubilate” KV 165 was composed in Milan in the January of 1773. The piece doesn’t employ a choir, as it was expressly composed for the famous castrato Venanzio Raunzini, who sang the title role in Mozarts’ opera “Lucio Silla”. The subdivision in four movements (in the alternation fast – slow – fast) remembers the structure of a instrumental symphony, while the virtuoso-expressive treatment of the vocal part and the presence of a recitative refer to the Italian operatic style of the time.
Composed in Salzburg in the may of 1771, the “Regina Coeli” KV 108 follows the expressive patterns of the Neapolitan church music of Scarlatti, Pergolesi, Jommelli and Porpora. Two choral episodes, mostly homorythmic and richly orchestrated, frame the two brilliant arias of the solo soprano; both section of the first one are provided with the accompaniment of the choir. In the last movement the dialogue between soloist and tutti emphasizes the predominant role of the soloist, which is characteristic of the piece.”
