Item Number: CA.2770111

Key: F-dur (f major).

The series "Vienna - Music of the imperial royal seat" has been initiated with Caldara's Ave maris stella for solo soprano and alto, two obbligato violins and basso continuo. The performance dates in the surviving source material show that the piece was performed on 1 February in 1752 and 1754 during the first solemn vespers for Candlemas, probably in the Great Hofburgkapella. The short pleasing piece is suitable in a concertante setting as well as for sacred services (especially on feasts to the Virgin Mary and during vespers), but it is also appropriate for prayer services.
