D Scarlatti: Tu mi chiedi o mio ben

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

Our erstwhile suitor compares the beams from Filli's eyes to cupid's darts. These darts strike his heart and cause all the blood to flow from it - perhaps a trifle dramatic but certainly worth a sing! In RARARA format with some typically twisted harmonic and melodic shifts.
