Forces: alto & continuo
"Where are you my beautiful Irene?…Where are you hiding? The sun shines among the shadows and leaves but it does not shine for me." The God of Love has been busy giving that pain only Love can bring… A very attractive, short cantata in ARA format with a final recitative instead of a da capo. A lugubrious Adagio to start and a semi-ground andante to finish.
