Forces: mezzo-soprano, violins & continuo
“Irene is so beautiful when she wears white – it reminds me of the colour of my devotion to her.” A delicious work for low soprano (or high counter tenor) and violins, in Scarlatti’s later Neapolitan galant style. Transparent textures and buoyant melodic lines are the colour of this sparkling work.
Vocal range: c’ – f#”.
