    Baroque Italy was the birthplace of opera and oratorio, as well as their smaller partner-form the cantata. In the early 1700s figures such as Stradella, Bononcini and Alessandro Scarlatti influenced composers all over Europe to produce technically-demanding secular cantatas in a rich, free and varied melodic style that was masterful in its writing for the voice. The wonderfully inventive Italian cantatas of Handel – who himself visited Italy as a young man – provide the focus of this celebration of the genre.
