Cupid is at it again in a very effective lontananza cantata in ARARARArioso format. "Separation is a terrible poison, like a cruel snake which reaches your breast. Hope brings despair to every joy". Some really effective writing by a composer much neglected outside of Naples, but celebrated at home.
