Cantata con violini
£6.95
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''

Motetto solo (Psalm 112)
£7.95
Leo: Salve Regina in C minor
Forces: soprano, strings & continuo

A darker and more complex setting of the Marian antiphon than the well-known F major version. Some exquisite harmonic shifts, changes in instrumentation and beautiful, singable vocal writing. Divided into 5 sections (one in two parts) the text is painted with a vivid palette of instrumental and vocal colour.

Setting father Salve Regina
£7.95
Leo: Salve Regina in F major
Forces: soprano, strings & continuo

Source: Royal Music Collection 23.c.17.(3)

A new edition of Leo's exquisite Salve Regina in F major.

In 6 sections - Largo, Allegro, Largo, Allegretto, Recitativo, Largo it has excellent variation between sections, the fourth running directly into the recit using a descending figuration. This piece has the ability to really move the listener. It is one of the works which make one ask, "Why, to a large extent, was this composer forgotten for so long?"

Range: d - b flat''

Editor: James Sanderson

Setting of the Salve Regina
£6.95
Porpora: Or che d'orrido verno
Forces: soprano, flute, strings & continuo

Range: d - a'

Editor: James Sanderson

Cantata con flauto e stromenti
£6.95
Porpora: Venticel che trà le frondi
Forces: mezzo-soprano, strings & continuo

From a very clear contemporary copy in the British Library

A substantial cantata with a text concerning our old friends Tirsi and Clori.

Range c# - f' and would suit a low soprano or highish alto. Excellent largo to start and a dramatic accompagnato recit. The feel is similar to the Venetian motets.
