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”
