Bononcini: Siedi Amarilli mia

Cantata à voce sola di contralto e violini
Forces: alto, violins & continuo

A large cantata for alto with a complicated structure. The story deals with the pain of love and includes a dialogue between the lovers Amarilli and Fileno (though sung by the same voice). The first aria sighs, alternating with recitative, the second is sobbing and the third is sprightly. Two-part opening prelude.
