A Scarlatti: Bel Dorino, amata Clori
Forces: soprano, bass, violins & continuo

An unusual work from the collection of the Landesbibliotek Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Mus. 4829. It is a love story between the two singers summed up by the final lines "...vivo sol per Clori/Dorino..."

The cantata is attributed to Alessandro Scarlatti in Grove, however Hanley was not sure and the style is unusual, no recits, but four duets with the central movement an harmonic mine-field.

A Scarlatti: Tu resti o mio bel nume
Forces: bass, violins & continuo

The subject is of lovers parting. The debate is about who suffers most - the one who has to leave, or the one left behind. A fine accompagnato recitative introduces the cantata, which is more lyrical than virtuoso. Aria 1 is an elegant siciliano on the theme of two souls as ship and harbour. Aria 2 returns to the musical idea of the opening accompagnato: departure is equated with death, but made sweetened by constancy. Here the violin figurations are ornate, the harmonies intense, and the singer is invited to display a range of an octave and a 5th in the space of 2 quavers. RARA (2 arias are for unison violins)

Vocal range: G#-d'

Here we see both sides of the coin with the soprano lamenting the pain of separation and the bass rejoicing that being so far apart there is less pain... This is a wonderful duetto da camera in Duet - recit - aria - recit- aria - duet format. One for each and the two duets surrounding all.

Porpora: Calcante ed Achille
Forces: soprano, bass, violins, viola & continuo

A substantial chamber duet with a sinfonia, an aria for each character and a final duet.
