Hasse: Per palesarti appieno
Forces: mezzo-soprano, strings & continuo

Dated London, 1751 this cantata can be performed with either violins or flutes/recorders - it is unclear from the source as to which instrument was preferred (althoug if pushed I would probably lean towards flutes/recorders because of the instrumental writing in the first aria - Amoroso). The subject is a rather coy lady, probably in love with the Fileno to whom she speaks, but who knows?

Range: c' - f''

Leo: Chiesta da numi a morte (L'Andromeda)
Forces: soprano, strings & continuo

Source: BL RM MS 22.g.9 (9)

From a copy in the Royal Music Collection thought to be the only one (Pastore), this is a wonderful piece with a flaw. It is missing the first two lines of text for the second recitative - odd! It works, however and the poetry balances without it. Something strange here so we have decided to make it available.

In 2 recit and aria form (arias con spirito e vivace and tempo giusto the second recit accompagnato) it describes the plight of Andromeda, her plaint to the Gods, the arrival of her erstwhile rescuer Perseus and his call to the Gods to have mercy. It is full of 'pre-classical' markers such as strong dominant pedals, greater chordal movement in accompanying parts, the use of chromatic melody, many dynamic markings and rapid changes from passages in tonic major and tonic minor.

Leo: Dite vedesti forse una donzella
Forces: soprano, violins & continuo

The never-ending search for Nice fills this virtuosic cantata. Lovely imagery including lions, tigers, waves and ships in RARA format. The first aria is full of pathos, calling for the nightingale, the second, following a recitativo accompagnato is fast and furious, a 'navigante' aria. with a range extending to high B flat, this is quite a piece of work!

Scarlatti: Cantata Pastorale, 1716
Forces: voice, 2 violins & continuo

'Non sò qual più m'ingombra': the first published modern edition with parts of 'the other' Christmas solo cantata, based, with kind permission, on the autograph score in the Deutsche Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

The low soprano range of the vocal part lends itself to performance by various voice types, e.g. mezzo soprano or countertenor. The work opens with a masterly accompanied recitative on the wonder of the Christmas story. The two arias beautifully contrast Scarlatti's most ornate 'modern' style with the simplicity of the final Siciliano, with its message of peace to the whole world.
