Mancini: Arse lunga staggione del bel volto
Forces: soprano & continuo

Source BL Add 14211 f 150 - 156

A curiously formed cantata beginning with secco recitative which becomes 'a tempo' then moves into an aria and finished with a minuet. It's inconstant Fille and constant Fileno again, with Fileno venting his sadness.

Range: d#' - g''

Mancini: Barbara gelosia
Forces: soprano & continuo

"Between hope and fear the poor heart does not know what to do..." So ends this exciting cantata in ARARA format. Virtuosic (but with pathos). A tale of how jealousy can ruin even the strongest of relationships.

Range: d - b''

Mancini: Clori che ardea d'amore
Forces: soprano & continuo

Clori is '...burning with love...' for the handsome Daliso, but, of course, he is unfaithful and causes her to vent her spleen in many imaginative ways. Great recitatives and two splendid rage arias make up this RARA format cantata from the Naples Conservatorio Library collection.

Mancini: Clori che un dì vantava
Forces: soprano & continuo

A cantata all about one of our favourite topics: infedelity! Clori's boasts of '...a constant breast, a faithful heart, a loyalty in love...' have proved unfounded and she is reviled as '...barbarous, faithless, cruel and treacherous, without a heart...' In RARA format this is a very effective betrayal cantata from a source at the Naples Conservatorio S Pietro a Majella.

Mancini: Clori non ti lagnar
Forces: soprano & continuo

Source: BL Add 14211 ff 3r - 10v

A truly lovely cantata in five movements with Mancini's typical flexible attitude to recitative/arioso/aria combinations. A later performer, perhaps even the copyist, has made the note 'cantata bona di partenza' and has personalised a version of the text changing the lovers' names (Clori and Lillo) to Cara and me.

Range: d' - a''

Mancini: Clori quant'io t'amai

At last Clori is being deserted by her beloved. Curiously, however, she retains her hold over him as he bemoans the cruelty of Fate for separating them. In RARARAR format with the central aria a complicated 3/4 - 6/8 and 4/4.

Mancini: Crudele lontananza
Forces: soprano & continuo

A classic lontananza cantata with Clori once again responsible for our lover's torment, but he still wants to "kiss the arrow that pierced my heart..." Oh, for goodness' sake! RARARA format, with two slow and one fast. Short, vivid recitatives.

Mancini: D'amore onesto e fido
Forces: soprano & continuo

Love honest and faithful? Really? This delightful cantata in RARARA format puts forward the theory that Love would be a truly wonderful thing, were it not for the fire of jealousy! Very well-drafted, each aria has a particular mood and the recitatvies are full of fun inflections and some lovely chromatic writing.

Mancini: D'un garrulo ruscello
Forces: soprano & continuo

Elisa is clearly unhappy in love and asks the silver brook to join her in her sorrows. Well, that's the first half! By the second recit-aria pair of the cantata she has worked herself up into quite a state and is crying 'Perfidy', and 'Treacherous...let us speak of love no more...I am your sworn enemy...' The first aria is a languid Larghetto, the second a fiery Allegro.

Oh, Lidio is being difficult again and causing heartache. His loving lady wishes rather for death than his absence. Finally, in the last aria, he reappears and is likened to the sun at the break of day banishing sadness. Awww...

Mancini: Daliso anima mia
Forces: soprano & continuo

Imminent departure, instant pain! "Daliso my beloved, pain of my heart, sweet agony...". This is a large (RARARA) cantata dated 1st of August 1710 in a particularly clear copy. Real variety in recits and especially in the arias.

Mancini: Dimmi ingrata incostante
Forces: alto & continuo

A marvellous work by Mancini in RARA format - the recitatives are extensive and harmonically complex. The subject deals with infidelity and starts with the (female) protagonist railing at Lidio, calling him unfaithful, liar etc. The last aria ends, however, with the decision to match his betrayal with her own!

"Hell has never had such pain as the pain that love for you causes me - you know of it but do nothing to lessen it", he sings. Of course Cupid is to blame! Some wonderful writing in a large cantata in RARARA format, excellent text to work with both in aria and recitative.

What is worse, to be near an unfaithful love or separated from a faithful one? This is the question our singer poses: 'Examine my heart...'. This is a delightful lontananza cantata which gives into the 'Forces of the nude archer...'. Cupid has been busy again, clearly!
