Porpora: Alto Giove

Aria for Farinelli from Polifemo
Forces: soprano, strings & continuo

The aria made famous through the film 'Farinelli: il castrato' Beautiful and virtuosic, it concerns Acis thanking Jove for making him immortal.

In two sections, the beautiful lento with it's slowly moving harmony and sinuous vocal line, and an unexpected andantino middle section.

Range: d - g''
