Summary "Il trionfo has many characteristics of the oratorio genre as Italy understood it in the early eighteenth century. The story is carried forward by a small number of characters, with little involvement of a chorus. The nature of the text, an allegorical representation of the assumption of the Virgin Mary, is, however, less expected. The feast (15 August) celebrates the death and translation of Mary, a story that survives in Greek, Latin, Syriac, and Coptic sources. In Il trionfo, however, any religious narrative is eschewed for a debate between Music and Poetry. Using the building blocks of the oratorio, Marcello achieves a dynamic, dramatic work by introducing variations into the recitative-da capo pattern. The slightly passé academic style of Il pianto has been lifted in tone, leading to the lighter, more homophonic approach of the early classical style." -- Provided by publisher.
