Domine ad adjuvandum me, 1778 (Baldassare Galuppi)
Short setting (approximately three minutes) of the text Domine ad adjuvandum me festina, scored for soprano and mezzo soloists, SATB choir, two oboi, two corni, strings and continuo.
Our edition’s source comes from a set of manuscripts preserved at the Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris. The work couples well with a Laudate pueri from the same set, which is scored for identical forces also available from the Galant Masters Project.
Although scored for a full liturgical ensemble, our edition has been successfully performed by strings and organ alone. Additionally, the reduction in the vocal score may provide for suitable accompaniment on organ or piano.
