Tomaso Albinoni

Di tante ree sciagure

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 the separation of lovers. It records the departure of Irene from 'Adria' the conventional Arcadian code-word for Venice and doubtless was written to commemorate a genuine parting of, say, members of a court. Throughout, Albinoni maintains the simple, lightly elegiac mood that is the hallmark of his style.
