      16th century Venice had four “Ospedali” to care for sick and orphaned children. During the 17th century, these developed into boarding schools for girls that placed great value on an outstanding musical education. They were soon an important part of Venetian musical life and attracted renowned musicians and composers as kapellmeisters. Johann Wolfgang Goethe reported about a performance in which “the women performed an oratorio from behind a screen; the church was full of listeners, the music was beautiful and the voices were wonderful”. The kapellmeisters in the Ospedale degl’Incurabili included Johann Adolf Hasse, who composed the oratorio we hear on this recording, Sanctus Petrus et Sancta Maria Magdalena, for this institution.
