Hasse: Orgoglioso fiumicello (alto)

Cantata obligato
Forces: mezzo-soprano & continuo

Source: BL Add MS 14213 ff 28r - 36v

Edited from an extremely clear copy in a lower key than usual (starts E major), this very popular cantata of the time (1732) exists in at least 8 copies world-wide. With a charming Sì suonar se piace opening with triplets against duplets, the cantata is in aria - recit - aria format. In the Metastasian text, it appears Clori has strayed, but her lover waits for her, knowing that the stream must return to the sea.
