Dubbio affetto il cor mi strugge
Soprano voice and basso continuo
ed. Michael Talbot
This cantata, from an important manuscript in Berlin containing 18 Albinoni cantatas for soprano and continuo, is on the ever-popular subject of a timid lover who, in the course of three arias and two recitatives, eventually plucks up the courage to declare his love openly. His progress from confusion via self-pity to a growing confidence is charted in the well-contrasted arias, which show Albinoni's lyrical gift at its best.
