This disc presents three vocal pieces for soprano with oboe and basso continuo, interspersed between four trio sonatas for 2 oboes & basso continuo. The first cantata "Mi palpita il cor" was written in England - there are four existing variants, but this presented here is probably the earliest, the date given here as 1717. The theme is typically pastoral, with the singer's amorous affliction, the sorrow and hope of being in love with Chloris. The second vocal piece "Meine Seele hort im Sehen" is one of Handel's nine German da capo arias written around 1724/25 which were never published; they were songs of spiritual devotion rejoicing in God's creation as manifested in the beauty of nature, and not intended for concert performance.
The third vocal, the cantata "Venus and Adonis" was probably Handel's first composition using the English language - an extant letter suggests that he received the libretto whilst briefly in Hanover before coming to England. This world première recording includes a part reconstruction by Luca Guglielmi, the harpsicordist with the ensemble Zefiro, as the recitatives and part of the oboe score are missing from the sole autograph manuscript.
Soprano Gemma Bertagnolli is a delightful vocalist skilfully delivering these pieces whether in Italian, German or English. The energetic and colourful ensemble Zefiro support excellently on period instruments.
