The only source for this oratorio, composed around 1723, is a manuscript score, made in Naples in 1731, and there guarded in the Library of the Conservatorio di Musica ìSan Pietro a Majellaî. Maria dolorata was commissioned to Vinci by the Congregation of the Seven Pains of the Virgin Mary, that had the princess Aurora Sanseverino among his illustrious members.

... this edition has been very carefully realized... It is good news that such Neapolitan sacred music is finally attracting scholarly attention, and that Vinci’s oratorio benefits from so competent a modern edition as this. (Christine Jeanneret)
