Forces: soprano, violins & continuo
A charming cantata with strings by Mancini. Our protagonist has lost his love, but being pragmatic has resigned himself to the possiblity of the loss being permanent whilst still hoping for a reconciliation. In ARA format with lovely writing for both voice and strings.
