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.

Leo: Dite vedesti forse una donzella
Forces: soprano, violins & continuo

The never-ending search for Nice fills this virtuosic cantata. Lovely imagery including lions, tigers, waves and ships in RARA format. The first aria is full of pathos, calling for the nightingale, the second, following a recitativo accompagnato is fast and furious, a 'navigante' aria. with a range extending to high B flat, this is quite a piece of work!

Porpora: Dice che m'ami
Forces: soprano & continuo

Source: BL Add 14214 ff 78v - 85v (only source)

In aria-recit-aria form, both arias without tempo indication, but probably a tempo giusto and lento or affettuoso. As usual, the recitative is beautifully crafted, accurately reflecting the rhythm of the language. The text concerns love as an allegory of the life of a sailor on rough seas.

Range: d - a'' flat
