Forces: soprano & continuo
As May is born and Summer begins everyone except Tirsi is feeling the ‘swelling of love’. The shepherdess in love with Tirsi is obviously not happy about this. The two arias encompass very different moods, the first, a happy allegro is bright and hopeful, the latter a slow, non da capo larghetto places the blame for unrequited love fairly on the shoulders of Amor.
