With sacred music always being the focal point of Zelenka's work, the violone playing composer who was born in Bohemia was eventually appointed Kirchen Compositeur in 1735 after having spent over twenty years as “the most humble and loyal servant” at the royal court in Dresden. Still, among his late works we also find the Serenata ZWV 177 from 1737, another major work, which, thanks to the newly discovered printed libretto, now has a title Il Diamante.
