Leo: Miserere mei Deus: quoniam in te confidit

Gradual and tract for Ash Wednesday
Forces: SATB & continuo

Source: BL Egerton MS 2466

The title page describes this work as being written for the Capella Reale di Napoli in 1744 (the year of Leo's death). It is not the Psalm 50 but the gradual and tract versicle for Ash Wednesday (in 1744). Divided into three sections: Miserere mei Deus, Misit de cælo (the gradual for Ash Wednesday in 1744) and Adjuva nos, Deus salutaris noster (the tract versicle for Ash Wednesday in 1744) there is real beauty in its simplicity. See also the Misereris omnium, Domine which is the 1744 introit for Ash Wednesday.
