Writen in October of 1745 for the girls of the Ospedaletto this is a continuous setting, i.e. not divided into separate sections other than for the short, fiery Gloria Patri. Similar in style to the other Psalm settings (Credidi Propter, In Exitu Israel, Qui habitat in adjutorium etc.)
Duration would be around 8 minutes and is perfect for a difficult programming spot!
