Forces: alto & continuo

"Know, oh beloved, that although I die from your inconstancy, I die with your face imprinted on my heart...". Yet another doormat for Clori's wanton ways. RARA format with a Larghetto "Tell me if you have found a new flame..." and a fiery, rhythmic Allegro to finish.

A Scarlatti: Agitato mio core
Forces: soprano & continuo

Dated on the first page as 'in Albano 1704'. Despite Eurilla's promise of fidelity her erstwhile beloved is nervous (small wonder with her track history) and his heart is all 'a-flutter'. RARA format with a particularly interesting format for the first aria Quietati.

Astorga: Cara Lidia adorata
Forces: soprano & continuo

Using the old 'ship into harbour' story our young man tries to woo Lidia, but she's having none of it! "...Too cruel, too unfaithful..." he cries, but to what avail? In RARA format with two very 'spiky' arias, lots of chromatic twists in both arias and recitatives.

Astorga: Clori, che un dì vantava costanza in petto
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Clori, who one day boasted of constancy in her breast and fidelity in her heart...' is not! Another setting of this poetry (see Mancini's), this time by the enigmatic Barone d'Astorga. In RARA format, this is delightful with some interesting challenges for the cellist.

Astorga: E pur dolce, dolce amore
Forces: soprano & continuo

Willing to die from the effects of love, but knowing of the inability of women to properly love or be faithful, our shepherd rejects the laughter of Cupid at his pains, knowing that a single glance from his beloved would give him the last laugh!

In ARA format with a affettuoso beginning and an allegro finish sourrounding a characteristically complex recitative this is an enjoyable and challenging example of the genre.

Bononcini: Amor, tiranno amor
Forces: soprano & continuo

A very strict warning about trusting in the fidelity of Cupid. Tyrannous Love has been causing mischief again in this ARARA format cantata. In the copy all the da capo sections have been written out in full with varied style of repeat. Perhaps an aural copy as there are no figures...

Bononcini: Ch'io ti manchi di fede
Forces: tenor & continuo

A large cantata edited from the Chandos collection copy in the British library. Unusual in that it's a contemporary copy from before 1720 (the date of the donation of the collection) for tenor. The transposition has provided some odd crossing of parts. Diverse aria structures (including a non-da capo aria) and interesting harmonic progressions.

Mancini: Clori che ardea d'amore
Forces: soprano & continuo

Clori is '...burning with love...' for the handsome Daliso, but, of course, he is unfaithful and causes her to vent her spleen in many imaginative ways. Great recitatives and two splendid rage arias make up this RARA format cantata from the Naples Conservatorio Library collection.

Mancini: Clori che un dì vantava
Forces: soprano & continuo

A cantata all about one of our favourite topics: infedelity! Clori's boasts of '...a constant breast, a faithful heart, a loyalty in love...' have proved unfounded and she is reviled as '...barbarous, faithless, cruel and treacherous, without a heart...' In RARA format this is a very effective betrayal cantata from a source at the Naples Conservatorio S Pietro a Majella.

Editor: James Sanderson

Mancini: Quanto mai saria più bella
Forces: soprano, violins & continuo

Being compared to a stream may not be every girl's idea of a compliment, and Irene is no exception. Our young shepherd loves her, but is worried she is not faithful. Two arias surround a busy recitative and the key is in our shepherd's final words: If the heart is a traitor all the beauty of a lovely face cannot make me a lover!!
