Forces: soprano & continuo
A real tour de force here with Vinci at his very best. Virtuosic final aria and a first aria full of pathos and affect. Some stunning vocal writing setting the bar very high for the performers. I leave ‘with a heavy heart…but as the stream returns to the sea, so will return to thee…’
