Porpora: Dolce canto l'Augellino

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

They never learn not to trust Cupid! Using the metaphor of a bird losing its freedom through falling in love with a beautiful face, the poet weaves an enchanting cantata text which Porpora sets using the ARA format. Both arias in minor keys but clearly portraying the bird in figurations reminiscent of bird call.
