A Bononcini: Augeletti, ruscelli ed aurette
Forces: mezzo-soprano & continuo

'Oh, how lucky is he who spends his days away from the noise and bustle of the city...the is no treasure more dear than sweet silence'. This is a paen to the pastoral life in ARA format. Absolutely delightful work with some very tricky vocal writing for a quite low voice part. Additionally, it is clear that Antonio was a cellist as the continuo part is both high and rather a challenge. Enjoyable for the cellists amongst you!

A Bononcini: Idol mio bel tesoro
Forces: soprano, flute & continuo

Eyes like darts and a face that ensnares, how could he resist? A cantata with flauto from the lesser-known Bononcini, but by no means the lesser composer. Some stunning writing here in this ARA format cantata from a manuscript in the Naples Conservatorio library.

Bononcini: Irene Idolo amato
Forces: soprano & continuo

Within the classic 'partenza' cantatas this is unusual as it refers directly to going off to war and perhaps dying in battle. Some lovely linguistic turns and this RARA format cantata.
