Description:
The oratorio Il sacrificio d'Abramo was first performed in Naples at the Teatro del Fondo in 1786. It "was Cimarosa's most widely performed sacred work during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centures...Since eighteenth-century manuscript copies of a number of separate, single items from this oratorio appear throughout various libraries (Naples, Venice, and the British Library in particular), and printed excerpts from it by Cimarosa have been publishyed... it is possible that Cimarosa collaborated with others for l sacrificio d'Abramo and equally possible that he alone composed more than one version of it. It seems highly likely, however, that the oratorio is the work of more than one composer. There is no question but that at least four, possible five versions of it, all puported to be by Cimarosa, are in existence."--see Rossi, Nick. Domenico Cimarosa: his life and his operas, pages 105-106.
