A Scarlatti: Quella pace gradita

Cantata à soprano, violin solo, flauto, violoncello solo, e cembalo
Forces: soprano, violin, flute, cello, cembalo

This autograph cantata consists of 3 recitatives and 3 arias, with instrumental introduction for 2 paired groups - solo violin and cello, with answering recorder and harpsichord. Performance markings from the surviving partbooks have been incorporated. The unusual scoring gives each instrument in turn a starring role, ending with the recorder cooing of the turtle-dove in Aria 3.
