With his uniquely prestigious series of posts as chapel master of the Duke of Mantua, Prince Ruspoli in Rome, and Emperor Charles VI in Vienna, Caldara became, not by accident, the highest paid composer of the eighteenth century, still greatly esteemed by those connoisseurs of later generations who had access to his manuscripts. Especially his Roman years could be reconstructed with archival documents and the oratorios composed in Italy examined in their historical context.
