This time the poor shepherd is dying for love of cruel Aminta. No matter what he does, beauty of her hair and her breast(!) force him to fall in love. The opening aria, probably largo has some interesting figurations which in most situations would be ornaments (32nd notes). Aria – recit – aria form.
Range: d – g’
