Mancini: Gelosia che dell'alme
Forces: soprano & continuo

Jealousy as the Mother of Tears is the theme of this very worthwhile cantata by the Neapolitan master. In RARA format, wonderfully expressive and tormented recitatives, a stunning Largo first aria and a fiery last aria.

Once again an interesting construction for this extensive cantata. Recit, aria, recit, aria, recit, minuet, recit which becomes arioso. Some very beautiful writing and moods that swing from Adone's lament at Clori's bad behaviour to arias about finding joy only in the beloved's face.

Not one of his best, but an interesting piece, particularly the use of harmony in the last aria (see MIDI) and the extraordinary way he plays with the text.
Range: e' - g''

Cantata à voce sola di soprano

Mancini: La dove il bel sebeto
Forces: soprano & continuo

"A languishing soul should not hope for pity, because in you is beauty and cruelty combined." Oh, how melodramatic can you be? Wonderful, sinuous first aria and a spry allegro to finish in this RARA form cantata. Tirsi and Irene are in their usual predicament...

Cantata a1 voce sola di soprano
£4.95
Mancini: La Rondinella trapassa il mar
Forces: soprano & continuo

From a volume of Mancini cantatas in the S Pietro di Majella Conservatorio library, this is an extremely cheerful 'lontananza' cantata. In ARA format with two delightfully playful arias and a complex, emotional recitative, this cantata should prove very popular with singers and audience alike.

Editor: James Sanderson

Cantata a1 voce sola di soprano
£4.95
Mancini: Lacrime sventurate
Forces: soprano & continuo

"...How the tears flowing from my heart show my pain..." RARA format, both in triple time, the first a rather lovely Siciliano. The opening recit is also wonderfully chromatic, capturing the image of the flowing tears.

Mancini: Lasciami solo in pene
Forces: soprano & continuo

Leave me alone in my pain! So repeats our (quite upset) protagonist in this RARA format cantata. A sinuous Siciliano and a resolute final aria set the text off very effectively. This is the composer at his very inventive stage.

Mancini: Lidia tu non me'l credi
Forces: soprano & continuo

A lovely example of the genre, RARA format with, once again from this manuscript, a particularly complex first aria. The subject: "Leave my heart in peace, speak not of love to me" Now, is that a way to go about Arcadian love?

Mancini: Lidio rendimi il core
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Lidio give me your heart'. Poor thing! She has had such bad luck in love, eventually all she wants is him, but knowing that '...it is rare to find beauty and gentleness without pain...' she doesn't really have much hope. A delightful first aria in the this RARA format cantata (see score preview) and a virtuosic, fun closing aria, this is a very enjoyable work with a sense of humour.

Mancini: Lumi cari del mio bel sole
Forces: alto & continuo

Mancini: Lungi dal tuo sembiante
Forces: soprano & continuo

Here our erstwhile lover is wrapped up in all the torments of the classic 'lontananza' cantata.

Pietro a Majella).

Mancini: Mentre in grembo al riposo
Forces: soprano & continuo

In his sleep, Fileno dreams that an unknown woman is lamenting over his rejection of her love. The first aria, the lament, is simply stunning - beautiful harmony and melodic writing. The last aria offers coloratura challenges and the recitatives are typically well-shaped and effective.

Mancini: Or che di Primavera (La Primavera)
Forces: soprano & continuo

The Spring fills the heart of animals, birds and plants with Love, even that of our singer with his love for Fille. But, of course, Fille does not return this love and leaves him broken-hearted...the classic rejection cantata. Our erstwhile lover then warns that the Winter of old age will rob her of her Spring-like beauty and she will regret 'Yes, yes!' having spurned his love. In RARA format, the arias are particularly beautiful and the recitatives wander through some bizarre tonal language.

Mancini: Pecorelle correte a quel fonte
Forces: soprano & continuo

Mancini: Piangete occhi dolenti
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Weep sad eyes, and distil my tears so that my laments fill each hour.' A wonderfully self-indulgent cantata from the Naples collection. In RARA format, the first a torturous Largo and the second a sprightly Allegro reminiscent of the recorder sonatas.
