Bononcini: Usignuol che col mio pianto
Forces: alto & continuo

Here our lover tells the nightingale to be silent and simply moan at the sadness he feels. Beautiful music with a depressing subject. Dorinda, it seems, is playing hard to get and our protagonist is lamenting the fact. Very much an alto cantata (going down to a bottom G) this is a fine example of the simpler ARA format with some delightful word-painting in both arias and recitative.
