This sad, pastoral cantata sees our hero Fileno languishing for lost love (of Clori of course) on the banks of the Tyrrhenian Sea - the scene of many a fevered brow! In double recit-aria format, both arias andante but vastly different. Some excellent changes from secco recit into arioso.

A Scarlatti: Era giunta quell' ora
Forces: soprano & continuo

Dated on the first page as '29 Novembre 1704'. Our protagonist has given in to the power of love and once more Fileno will be in Clori's arms. Her breast has far more allure than anything else! RARA format with two rapid-fire arias including an excellent Minuet.

The work consists of the two recitative-two aria structure, with each aria accompanied by unison violins, and in the keys of B minor and G major respectively.

In the beautiful kingdom of love there is hope only when faith reigns in a heart.

Mancini: Mentre in grembo al riposo
Forces: soprano & continuo

In his sleep, Fileno dreams that an unknown woman is lamenting over his rejection of her love. The first aria, the lament, is simply stunning - beautiful harmony and melodic writing. The last aria offers coloratura challenges and the recitatives are typically well-shaped and effective.
