With his Latin St. John Passion, written around 1770, Scarlatti strictly follows the contemporary conventions advanced for the Catholic liturgy: the continuo-supported evangelist's report is presented throughout as a monolodic recitation that is reminiscent of Carissimi and Monteverdi. Only for the words of Christ and the few four-voice choruses, as well as for some significant moments like the Judas scene or the death of Jesus, is a subtle string accompaniment added. An alternate German text is printed below the original Latin.
