By  | July 8, 2013 | 0 Comments | Filed under: Choral Music


by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (January 4, 1710 -- March 16 or 17, 1736)

Sung by David Daniels, countertenor with Europa Galante under Fabio Biondi


"Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiae,
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve."
[Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.]

"Salve Regina" in f minor for alto (countertenor) and strings

Salve Regina
Ad te clamamus
Eia ergo, advocata nostra
Et Jesum
O clemens

Pergolesi originally wrote this "Salve Regina" for soprano in c minor, but it was soon adopted to a version in f minor for alto, as heard on this recording.
In fact, the popularity of this work can be seen in the number of extant sources, ninety-two which are transposed into six different keys, with no fewer than thirty-eight sources for the version in f minor alone.
This CD also features Dorothea Röschmann in Pergolesi's well-known "Stabat Mater" and a "Salve Regina" in a minor.
