A Scarlatti: Bel Dorino, amata Clori
Forces: soprano, bass, violins & continuo

An unusual work from the collection of the Landesbibliotek Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Mus. 4829. It is a love story between the two singers summed up by the final lines "...vivo sol per Clori/Dorino..."

The cantata is attributed to Alessandro Scarlatti in Grove, however Hanley was not sure and the style is unusual, no recits, but four duets with the central movement an harmonic mine-field.

A pastoral idyll, once again love is thwarted by Clori!

A Scarlatti: Filli e Clori, 'Amica, hora che Aprile'
Forces: 2 sopranos, violins & continuo

Sources: edition based on 4 17th-early 18th century manuscripts in the Santini Collection (Münster), the British Library, and the Bodleian Library, Oxford. [the details are in the editorial notes]

Description: Filli persuades the reluctant Clori to abandon city life for the delights of the country, where she is sure to make new conquests in the hunt of love. Both Filli and Clori have 2 arias of 2 strophes each, interspersed with ritornelli. In the magical final duet, the girls agree to prepare their feet for dancing, and their arms for the hunt. Cardinal Ottoboni's documents mention a performance of 'Amica, hora che Aprile' dated 13 July, 1694. The survival of this work in several sources suggests it was a well-known work in its day.
