Bononcini: O mesta tortorella

Cantata à voce sola di contralto
Forces: alto & continuo

The image of the turtle dove taking away sorrow and bringing contentment to the unhappy shepherdess longing for her beloved Tirsi. In RARA format with a throbbing affettuoso and a sprightly con spirito, ma non presto. Great writing for the continuo as well!
