Bononcini: Cieco nume tiranno spietato

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

One of Bononcini's most beautiful cantatas, the subject here deals with Love's blind cruelty. In 5 sections with no da capo arias and with a recurring theme of the title text, the last section presto assai is particularly virtuosic, though broken by emotional largo sections.
