Conclusion of score: L D B M V. This mass with five-part vocal writing is almost certainly the item listed among three Neapolitan masses (Feo, Leo, and Sarro) in the incomplete catalogue of Maria Josepha’s music collection (D-Dl, Bibl.-Arch. III Hb 787c), an inventory dated c1743. See Ágústsson, ‘The Secular Vocal Collection of Jan Dismas Zelenka’, 33).
It is likely that this example (Mus. 2460-D-1) was among scores received as gifts or else purchased in Naples or Rome during the grand tour of Saxon Prince Friedrich Christian (May 1738–October 1739). See Bacciagaluppi & Stockigt, ‘Italian Manuscripts of Sacred Music in Dresden’, 154, where it is noted that the copyist ‘Ristori B’ copied the second acts of Ristori’s Temistocle and Porpora’s Semiramide riconosciuta, as well as Leo’s Miserere (D-Dl, Mus. 2460-D-7a), this Kyrie and Gloria in G Major (D-Dl, Mus. 2460-D-1), and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater (D-Dl, Mus. 3005-D-1b).
According to Eitner (see below), in addition to this score copy kept in the royal library, a score with parts was held by the Catholic court church.
No stamps.
