Forces: soprano & continuo

'Like an errante butterfly, I seek the sun I adore...' This is a charming short cantata in ARA format, the first a plaintive lament, the second a fiery presto (see PDF preview) railing at Cupid.

Mancini: Quando la notte impera (La Farfalletta)
Forces: soprano & continuo

This was clearly a popular work in its time with no less than three copies found in the Naples collection. 'When night rules...' Like a moth to a flame the lover goes, but must he die for his love? In RARA format with two beautifully shaped arias and complex, harmonically challenging recitatives, one can see why it was popular!

Mancini: Queste vermiglie note
Forces: alto & continuo

An extraordinarily emotional work dealing with the suicide of the distant lover. "These crimson notes, notes which I write to you from opened veins..."

Mancini: Scritte con falso inganno
Forces: soprano & continuo

Each line written in blood is examined here in the response to 'Tinte à note di sangue' and found wanting. Lies, damn lies! 'Would I could hear from those lips: Peace, peace my dearest. Instead, in fire and anger I can only respond in my rage: WIcked liar, liar and terrible'. Fiery and exciting writing in RARA format cantata. From a manuscript in the collection of the Biblioteca del Conservatorio di Musica S Pietro a Majella, Naples. Editor: James Sanderson

Mancini: Se non piangi al pianto mio
Forces: soprano & continuo

"If you do not cry at my tears..." Continuing with the sad cantata themes, this is a lovely work in ARARA format by the Neapolitan master Francesco Mancini. Pathos and not a little fire are on offer with some truly twisted recitatives in our lover's reaction to Lilla's heartlessness!

Mancini: Solitudini care
Forces: soprano & continuo

'Come, see how I have carved the name of Licori in every branch. Come read how I love a beautiful shepherdess who is as ungrateful as she is cruel.' Nice to see the table turned once again (!) and Tirsi is busy with the bemoaning and bewailing. A stunning first Larghetto aria (with nightingales) and a fiery finish in the second aria Allegro. RARA format.

A cantata dedicated to the little green demon of jealousy! Three excellent arias, particularly the first and some extensive and carefully crafted recitative. From a collection dated 1706, at least know the latest date it could have been written!

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

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.

Marcello: Da voi parto amati rai
Forces: soprano & continuo

Three part aria from an MS in the British Library containing much Pepusch, Bononcini and Marcello among others. In this manuscript the composer is said to be Porpora however a proven copy in the I-Nc collection indicates this is actually by Marcello. It's a delightful piece as usual.
