Alla Virtù della Sig. Maria Pignatelli - Unpublished italian baroque cantatas

We therefore featured three cantatas by G. Porsile, each of which has a musical or literary characteristic trait. Also by Mancini, Va sospirando il core is one of the cantatas that can be found in many collections. A. Scarlatti naturally appears in this Neapolitan part of the CD with the cantata Lontananza non risana recorded on a tenor viol. Two other cantatas in the manuscript caught our attention: Poiché più dell’amore, by the Milanese Carlo Antonio Monza, whose vocal music remains extremely poorly known; and the cantata E che più far poss’io by Francesco Gasparini, one of the most important Italian opera composers of the first three decades of the 18th century.
