Forces: soprano, violins & continuo
In receipt of a ‘Dear Jane’ letter our protagonist questions everything about it: "…What do you mean by your words ‘I am not’…" She maintains her control until the middle section of the last aria where presto e risoluto she loses it completely. RARA format with some stunning vocal writing.
