Bononcini: Dolente, e mesta vò sospirando

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

Sadly sighing she longs for her lover Elpino. She searches the shepherd's hut, the fields and can't find him, finally singing a con spirito aria calling to him to come to her. In ARA format with a deliciously chromatic opening cantabile, et affettuoso. Interestingly, the continuo line drops to a BB, which would require some retuning.
