Hasse: Pur ti stringo in questo petto

Cantata da camera
Forces: alto & continuo

Source: BL Add MS 14213 ff 49v - 55v

This was a very popular work at the time of its writing. There are no fewer than 7 copies extant, 3 of which are in the UK. The cantata starts with an aria with 'Si suonar se piace' over contrary motion figures in the continuo/upper part. Reminiscent in some ways of Orgoglioso fiumicello. The final section is a recit-cum-arioso apologising for any interruption! Very singable, very enjoyable...
