This fine duet for soprano and bass comes from Donati's Op. 5 Concerti Ecclesiastici, first published in 1618. The jubilant text from Isaiah 61 is set mostly imitatively, although there are short passages of declamation for both singers as well. There is none of the virtuosity associated with the composer's solo motets.
