Sarri: Voi portate un anno al nome
Forces: soprano & continuo

A litte gem of a cantata from Sgr Sarri. "You carry your name all year, all I want is one day of it...you have kidnapped my senses". ARA format with a lovely opening Affettuoso and a fiery 'combattere' aria to finish. Cupid is up to his old tricks...

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
£4.95
Vinci: È pure un gran' portento
Forces: soprano & continuo

'You know the giref I feel, the mountains know and the valleys, the fields, the animals, but not the idol of my life...' Poor guy, you have to feel sorry for him! A lovely galante stlye cantata with exquisite first aria and technically demanding finale. RARA format and really 'something to get your teeth into'.

Cantata da camera
£4.95
Vinci: Mi costa tante lacrime
Forces: soprano & continuo

An extraordinarily effective work in ARA format. Both arias are stunning and real examples of the brilliance of Vinci's inventiveness both in terms of ornamentation and vocal line. Some really effective word-painting too. "It cost me many tears, the purchase of your heart..." Need I say more?

Vinci: Parto mà con qual core
Forces: soprano & continuo

A real tour de force here with Vinci at his very best. Virtuosic final aria and a first aria full of pathos and affect. Some stunning vocal writing setting the bar very high for the performers. I leave 'with a heavy heart...but as the stream returns to the sea, so will return to thee...'

Cantata da camera

Vinci: Tu partisti, o del core
Forces: alto & continuo

A delightful offering from Sgr. Vinci, in RARA format, the recitatives long and complex, the arias reflecting Burney's opinion than Vinci was a master at "...simplifying and polishing melody and calling the attention of the audience cheifly to the voice part."

Sad, yet vibrant - a tale of longing and despair.

Range: a - e'
