Description: Profane Love manages to win Mary Magdalene over to Sacred Love in this oratorio from 1701 with Bononcini reacting to the suggestions of the text by producing a score that holds a wonderful variety and a constant novelty of invention, and in which immediate heartfelt expressiveness, conspicuous vocal requirements and many nuances of timbre and harmony concur to define a profile for each character. 2 CDs.
