D Scarlatti: Che vidi, o Ciel, che vidi?
Forces: soprano, violins & continuo

One of Domenico Scarlatti's most dramatic cantatas with violins: Heavens! Oh Heavens! Tirsi is languishing, and his face darkens with sorrow. Beside him, his faithful consort piteously expresses in a sad song the harsh pain in her heart, which arouses her bitter weeping. Or else, remaining silent, her glance seems to speak to him, saying "Are you leaving me and abandoning me?"

Commencing with a highly dramatic accompagnato with two contrasting arias and another recit both secco and accompagnato

Range: b flat - b'' flat

D Scarlatti: Piangete occhi dolenti
Forces: soprano, violins & continuo

Weep, eyes weep... What a cheery subject! Love's passion at it's saddest in this virtuosic cantata by Domenico Scarlatti: '...I am in love, and my beloved scorns my pain; she has no feeling of pity...'

Mancini: Gelosia che dell'alme
Forces: soprano & continuo

Jealousy as the Mother of Tears is the theme of this very worthwhile cantata by the Neapolitan master. In RARA format, wonderfully expressive and tormented recitatives, a stunning Largo first aria and a fiery last aria.

Mancini: Lacrime sventurate
Forces: soprano & continuo

"...How the tears flowing from my heart show my pain..." RARA format, both in triple time, the first a rather lovely Siciliano. The opening recit is also wonderfully chromatic, capturing the image of the flowing tears.

Mancini: Piangete occhi dolenti
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Weep sad eyes, and distil my tears so that my laments fill each hour.' A wonderfully self-indulgent cantata from the Naples collection. In RARA format, the first a torturous Largo and the second a sprightly Allegro reminiscent of the recorder sonatas.

Beautifully crafted cantata in a very good and detailed copy. Tirsi is 'dolente' and mesto' yet again, this time starting at the top of a mountain. Here he feels all the pain that love for Eurilla is causing. The first aria, Lento is a perfect evocation of this emotion.
Range: e flat' - g''

Sarri: De suoi fervidi ardori
Forces: soprano & continuo

A delightful cantata in RARARA format, the final aria without da capo. Clori is, as usual, very upset. Tirsi is ignoring her pain, ignoring her love, ignoring her... And what does she do? She sings about it. in fact the final, short, arioso has her still singing, despite her tears!
