雷斯皮基《基督耶稣颂歌》(Lauda per la Natività del Signore)
Respighi's cantata Lauda per la Natività del Signore, a setting of a text by the 13th century Franciscan friar Jacopone da Todi, was composed in 1930; it was first performed on November 22 of that year in Siena, under the direction of the composer. In addition to three vocal soloists and chorus, the work is scored for 2 flutes (one doubling piccolo), oboe, English horn, 2 bassoons, triangle, and piano (four hands).
The Lauda per la Natività del Signore (or Laud for the Nativity) is a beautiful pastoral work that depicts the nativity of Jesus as the shepherds might have seen it. Respighi employs several archaic forms and devices: madrigals ("Contenti ne andremo"), Monteverdi-like arioso ("Seignor tu sei descieso"), some plainchant, and even a touch of fugue in the "Gloria" section. In addition to chorus, a small wind orchestra and piano, the work features three soloists: soprano ("The Angel"), mezzo-soprano ("Mary"), and tenor ("The Shepherd").
The Lauda is based on a text by Jacopone da Todi, a 13th-century Franciscan poet who was originally a successful practitioner of the law. In 1267 he married a deeply religious noblewoman who did penance for her all-too-worldly husband. The next year when Jacopo insisted that she attend a public tournament against her wishes, his wife was killed when the stands in which she sat collapsed. Following this tragic event, the devastated Jacopo abandoned his profession and his belongings, joined the Franciscan order after a decade of penance, and became a writer of laude (psalms), of which he composed some 200. The famous hymn Stabat Mater Dolorosa is thought to be one of his numerous passionate, mystical poems. He was eventually excommunicated because of his participation in the Spiritual movement, which called for the Church to embrace the ideal of total poverty, and he was imprisoned in 1298 for signing a manifesto against the pope. He was released in 1303 and withdrew to a hermitage, devoting the last three years of his life to composing mystical poems, and dying on Christmas day in 1306.
Respighi dedicated his Lauda per la Natività del Signore to Count Guido Chigi Saracini, founder of the Accademia Chigiana in Siena. The work received its premiere in the count's palace on St. Cecilia's Day, 1930, performed by the Piccolo Coro di Santa Cecilia under the direction of the composer; Elsa Respighi sang the role of Mary. A month later, on December 26, the work was first performed in Rome.
