This is one of the Neapolitan masses entered under the name Fago in ‘Musica di Chiesa di varii Autori’ in Maria Josepha’s catalogue (No. 6) (D-Dl, Bibl.-Arch. III Hb 787c), an inventory that can be dated to c1743 (dating given by Jóhannes Ágústsson, ‘The Secular Vocal Collection of Jan Dismas Zelenka’, 33). The other Neapolitan Kyrie/Gloria settings are by Francesco Feo (I/F/13/8), and Domenico Sarro (III/S/7/1). These are listed into the Catalogo (1765) but not in later catalogues of Wettin family members. This setting represents an example of exchange between the royal collection and the collection of Dresden’s Catholic court church. Items could migrate from one member of the royal family to another through gift or inheritance. It also seems that they could also be given to the court musicians. See Bacciagaluppi & Stockigt, ‘Italian Manuscripts of Sacred Music in Dresden’, 150–51.
NB the similar appearance of this source to Feo’s Kyrie e Gloria (Mus. 2409-D-1).
In the later ‘Catalogo della Musica di Chiesa ...’ (c1784) two scores are listed for this Mass setting by Tarantino (Fago). Mus. 2200-D-2 is a complete Mass setting (III/T/6/2). Scoring: ‘à 5 voci co’ VVni. Oboi, Vla Trombe ed Org.’ Marked ‘fehlt’; the other is this listing of a Kyrie/Gloria pair, also marked ‘fehlt’ (III/T/6/3).
