The Agony of Love
Bedern Hall

The Italian Baroque cantata was refined vocal chamber music for the connoisseur, often composed for particular patrons or singers, or even for a special occasion. Graham Cummings, Visiting Professor in Historical Musicology at the University of Huddersfield, explores aspects of the poetry and music of the cantatas Handel composed during his extended stay in Italy as a young man, introduces some of their patrons, and speculates on likely performers.
