Mancini: Stavan due tortorelle
Forces: soprano & continuo

Like two turtle doves they bill and coo, but while the one bills 'love' the other bills 'pain and torment'. So a normal day in our pastoral setting! Clori is there of course and probably responsible for the pain.

Mancini: Tenebroso era il sole e'l ciel
Forces: soprano & continuo

Little known, but unjustifiably so! This RARA format cantata opens with a virtuosic recitative and continues to challenge both singer and continuo player throughout. A text full of longing for the beloved: The sun and the heavens were dark without a glimpse of your face...

A complex piece with an excellent vari-tempo final aria. The text can be summed up in two lines from the first recit: Written in blood, these tormented words my betrayed heart sends to you...Think, think how much I have loved you, know that you are not mine, and weep for the pity of my plight

Mancini: Un amante ama due belle
Forces: soprano & continuo

A charming cantata filled with indecision and containing one of Mancini's most beautifula arias. A young man loves both Cintia and Irene and really doesn't know what to do - can you help? RARA format.

Mancini: Vaghe pendici amene
Forces: alto & continuo

This is a lovely example of the genre with two well-crafted recitatives and two lovely arias. Some challenging continuo writing as well. Eurilla is the source of consternation this time and the lives of 'Ninfe e Pastore' never run smooth. Stunning word-painting.
