Porpora: Qui Habitat

Setting of Psalm 90/91
Forces: 2 soprani solo, SSAA coro, strings & continuo

Source: autograph in BL Add MS 14126

Another single section psalm setting written for the girls of the Ospedaletto in Venice in February of 1744. Launching straight into a rapid word setting and using advanced, and in some moments unusual, harmonic changes. The solo sections are, as usual, virtuosic, the choral writing exciting, but not too difficult to sing.
