Motet: Exsultate, Jubilate K.165 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791)

ALLELUIA

In October 1772 Wolfgang and his father, Leopold, had travelled to Milan for the premiere of the opera Lucio Silla, in which the famous castrato Venanzio Rauzzini was to sing the role of Cecillo - Mozart was just sixteen. Precisely why Mozart composed Exsultate, jubilate at that time, and why specifically for Rauzzini and not a female soprano, is not known. Venanzio Rauzzini was scheduled to sing the new motet in Milan's Church of San Antonio on 17 January 1773. However, Mozart hadn�t even started it when his opera Lucio Silla opened in Milan on 26 December 1772. The work falls into three sections, suggesting a miniature symphony with the singer as solo instrument, and it concludes with the brilliant and joyous Alleluia. The Motet is scored for a small accompanying orchestra of two oboes, two horns and strings.
