I Penitenti al Sepolchro del Redentore
ZWV 63 (1736)


Oratorio I Penitent al Sepolchro del Redentore was premiered on March 30th, 1736. As one of the later Zelenka's works, it contains unique musical language, similar to Missa Votiva ZWV 18 (1739), piece of the same period.

We can hardly find anyone among his contemporaries who took advantage of string orchestra in similar way. Typical characteristic of Zelenka's pieces of this period is his ambition to experiment and to define limits of "the conceivable".
