Porpora: Cantatas Op. 1 (pt. 2 - alto)

Collection of 6 cantatas for contralto
Forces: alto & continuo

The second six of the cantatas dedicated to the Prince of Wales in 1735

All to texts by Metastasio, they are virtuosic, filled with beautifully written recitatives and arias, perhaps the high-point of Porpora's work in this genre.

Veggo la Selva e il monte
Or che una nube ingrata
Destatevi, destatevi ò pastori
Oh se fosse il mio core
Oh Dio che non è vero
Dal povero mio cor
