A Bononcini: Clori, dal' colle al' prato
Forces: alto & continuo

An unhappy Clori this time - not the cause of someone else's woes. Flora, fragrant Flora, has stolen her man and Clori is not happy "Flora, one day you'll see, one day you will be punished for your vanity". RARA format with two excellent, complex and beautiful arias.

A Scarlatti: La morte di Mitilde
Forces: soprano & continuo

Mitilde dies and with her dies the flame of Love. A challenging and fascinating example in RARA format, the recitatives travelling through widely disparate tonalities and the contrasting arias, one a stunning Adagio and one a classic cut-common rage against the tyrant, have very clearly defined characters and great musical values.

The source is a manuscript in the Naples collections. Editor: James Sanderson

Forces: soprano & continuo

Fantastically dramatic piece with a vocal range of A - a' (at one point in a single phrase) First aria is exceptional, divided into alternating slow and fast sections and with a rolling triple B section. This is one angry lady!

A fiery piece full of recrimination and anger, then self-pity and despair - a little like life really!! "Written in blood, my betrayed heart sends these tormented words to you...think how much I have loved you, know that you are not mine, and weep for the pity of my plight"

Two recit and aria format, the last aria, similar to the Mancini setting of the same text, alternates fast and slow

Leo: Oimè, che veggio?
Forces: soprano & continuo

The pain of betrayal and the anguish it causes is the theme of the first part of this delightful cantata. The sobbing of the affettuoso aria is beautiful. The second half of the cantata, however, sees our young man in a fury! His long recit and final 'rage' aria (with its contrasting 3/2 middle section) are a piece of virtuosic writing of the first order.

Mancini: Clori che ardea d'amore
Forces: soprano & continuo

Clori is '...burning with love...' for the handsome Daliso, but, of course, he is unfaithful and causes her to vent her spleen in many imaginative ways. Great recitatives and two splendid rage arias make up this RARA format cantata from the Naples Conservatorio Library collection.

Mancini: Clori che un dì vantava
Forces: soprano & continuo

A cantata all about one of our favourite topics: infedelity! Clori's boasts of '...a constant breast, a faithful heart, a loyalty in love...' have proved unfounded and she is reviled as '...barbarous, faithless, cruel and treacherous, without a heart...' In RARA format this is a very effective betrayal cantata from a source at the Naples Conservatorio S Pietro a Majella.

Mancini: D'un garrulo ruscello
Forces: soprano & continuo

Elisa is clearly unhappy in love and asks the silver brook to join her in her sorrows. Well, that's the first half! By the second recit-aria pair of the cantata she has worked herself up into quite a state and is crying 'Perfidy', and 'Treacherous...let us speak of love no more...I am your sworn enemy...' The first aria is a languid Larghetto, the second a fiery Allegro.

Mancini: Scritte con falso inganno
Forces: soprano & continuo

Each line written in blood is examined here in the response to 'Tinte à note di sangue' and found wanting. Lies, damn lies! 'Would I could hear from those lips: Peace, peace my dearest. Instead, in fire and anger I can only respond in my rage: WIcked liar, liar and terrible'. Fiery and exciting writing in RARA format cantata. From a manuscript in the collection of the Biblioteca del Conservatorio di Musica S Pietro a Majella, Naples. Editor: James Sanderson

Mancini: Se non piangi al pianto mio
Forces: soprano & continuo

"If you do not cry at my tears..." Continuing with the sad cantata themes, this is a lovely work in ARARA format by the Neapolitan master Francesco Mancini. Pathos and not a little fire are on offer with some truly twisted recitatives in our lover's reaction to Lilla's heartlessness!

Source: BL Add MS 14210

In one of Porpora's more dramatically contrasting cantatas, the young lover is exhorted to deal with his rage by railing at the heavens, giving rise to a wonderful aria 'Contro me il Ciel spietato'. We find out it's a girl again in the next recitative and the cantata finishes with the young man promising to die for his love.

This is an extremey enchanting cantata in aria-recit-aria form. The poor boy is totally in love but the beloved is having none of it. Retribution and hatred are the only alternatives. The opening matter of fact aria leads to an extraordinary recitative and final minuet.
