Bononcini: Cieco nume tiranno spietato
Forces: soprano & continuo

One of Bononcini's most beautiful cantatas, the subject here deals with Love's blind cruelty. In 5 sections with no da capo arias and with a recurring theme of the title text, the last section presto assai is particularly virtuosic, though broken by emotional largo sections.

An enormous and complex work for soprano and continuo telling through her own voice the fate of Cleopatra after being betrayed and deserted by Rome. Poison, asps, vengeance, fury, it has everything.

Mancini: D'un garrulo ruscello
Forces: soprano & continuo

Elisa is clearly unhappy in love and asks the silver brook to join her in her sorrows. Well, that's the first half! By the second recit-aria pair of the cantata she has worked herself up into quite a state and is crying 'Perfidy', and 'Treacherous...let us speak of love no more...I am your sworn enemy...' The first aria is a languid Larghetto, the second a fiery Allegro.

Once again an interesting construction for this extensive cantata. Recit, aria, recit, aria, recit, minuet, recit which becomes arioso. Some very beautiful writing and moods that swing from Adone's lament at Clori's bad behaviour to arias about finding joy only in the beloved's face.

Mancini: Mentre in grembo al riposo

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.

Mancini: Piangete occhi dolenti
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Weep sad eyes, and distil my tears so that my laments fill each hour.' A wonderfully self-indulgent cantata from the Naples collection. In RARA format, the first a torturous Largo and the second a sprightly Allegro reminiscent of the recorder sonatas.
