Nicola Porpora(1686-1768) born in Naples, was highly regarded during
his own lifetime as both a composer and singing teacher. The majority
of Porpora’s musical output centered around vocal music – operas,
cantatas, oratorios and sacred choral works. The majority of choral
works were written for treble voices, this Kyrie being one of the
composer’s few works for mixed voices.
