The oratorio as a musical form emerged toward the end of the seventeenth century as a kind of "spiritual exercise" encouraged by the Congregazione dell'Oratorio in Rome. The performances took place in oratories (prayer halls) constructed above church naves and were intended to be attractive but edifying entertainments. Then as later, oratorios generally reflected the popular forms and styles of secular music – and in late Renaissance and Baroque Italy, this meant opera, though based on religious rather than mythological and heroic themes. The most prolific composer in this genre was Antonio Caldara (c1670-1736); New Grove lists 43 oratorios (in addition to many operas) and there are probably more that have been lost, written for patrons in his native Venice, Rome, Florence, Mantua, and Vienna.

Through the combination of sacred and profane that she embodies, the profoundly human personality of Mary Magdalene greatly inspired artists of the Baroque era, whether painters, poets or composers. It was in the sphere of influence of Italian oratorios, highly prized at the court of Vienna, that Antonio Bertali devoted a most moving sepolcro to her in 1663, a genre traditionally played during Holy Week. In 1617, in Mantua, it was in the form of theatrical interludes that she was honoured by court composers such as Salomone Rossi, Muzio Effrem and Claudio Monteverdi, who wrote the prologue for this other Maddalena.

A young man studying in an academy secretarial practice makes writing letters addressed to an imaginary recipient who supposedly lives in Rome.

Antonio Caldara, in this recently rediscovered church opéra, reaches a rare level of beauty and intensity. Beauty essentially due to the perfect blend and contrast between the various voices. The two alti and the two soprani are absolutely marvellous in their complementary values and hues, and they enhance the bass and the tenor in a unique way. Intensity due to the debate in Maddalena between carnal love and spiritual christian love. This debate is represented by the fight between the two alti, Amor Celeste and Amor Terreno, redoubled with the same debate between the two soprani…

Sono trascorsi molti anni dalla morte di Gesù, quando Maria Maddalena, che si è stabilita ad Antiochia dopo aver sposato il mercante di seta Leonidas, riceve la visita di alcuni apostoli, che la sollecitano a scrivere i suoi ricordi sul periodo trascorso con il Messia. Maddalena sente il bisogno di narrare la tormentata storia della sua vita a partire dall'infanzia - che la vede perdere i genitori e crescere in una casa di piacere - fino all'incontro con Gesù, al loro amore e alla tragedia che seguirà. Nel farlo rivela qual è secondo lei il vero messaggio di perdono e tolleranza di Cristo, un contenuto travisato, già negli anni immediatamente successivi, dagli apostoli, dai quali nascerà una Chiesa in cui le donne non hanno voce.
