Ziani. Alma Redemptoris Mater. Sacred solo motet for alto, two violas da gamba, and basso continuo, Vienna 1713.
Marc' Antonio Ziani's solo motet Alma Redemptoris Mater for alto, two violas da gamba, and basso continuo has its place in the liturgy of the Advent and Christmas seasons. It was first performed in 1713 in Vienna. The voice and the viols move in the same compass, leading to a very compact sound impression. For many, this composition is on a par with Buxtehude's Jubilate Domino.
