A Scarlatti: Dove fuggi, ò bella Clori?
Forces: soprano, alto, violins & continuo

A virtuoso duet cantata for soprano and alto with strings, a mini-opera with wit, pathos, and brilliance. Lidio is in hot pursuit of Clori - but she scorns love and all his protestations, until in the final duet they join in praise of the joys and pains of love. Published by kind permission of the Diözesan-Bibliothek, Münster.

Bononcini: Lidio, schernito amante

The agony of love unrequited returns in the text of this work. The 'delirium of Love', the 'agony of the heart'. Excellent and virtuosic recitatives link three delightful arias covering a two octave range.

Mancini: Da che lungi n'andò
Forces: soprano & continuo

Source: BL Add MS 64960 Formerly owned by Maria Ducarel, recorded (f. ii verso) as a gift to her from George Henry Lee, 3rd Earl of Lichfield, in 1768. Oh, Lidio is being difficult again and causing heartache. His loving lady wishes rather for death than his absence. Finally, in the last aria, he reappears and is likened to the sun at the break of day banishing sadness. Awww...
Double recit-aria format.
Range: d - a'' flat

Mancini: Dimmi ingrata incostante
Forces: alto & continuo

A marvellous work by Mancini in RARA format - the recitatives are extensive and harmonically complex. The subject deals with infidelity and starts with the (female) protagonist railing at Lidio, calling him unfaithful, liar etc. The last aria ends, however, with the decision to match his betrayal with her own!

Mancini: Lidio rendimi il core
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Lidio give me your heart'. Poor thing! She has had such bad luck in love, eventually all she wants is him, but knowing that '...it is rare to find beauty and gentleness without pain...' she doesn't really have much hope. A delightful first aria in the this RARA format cantata (see score preview) and a virtuosic, fun closing aria, this is a very enjoyable work with a sense of humour.
