Reference: fb 1401321
Description: Ferrandini's Marian lament, dark and complex in tonality and archaic in melody, was attributed to Handel until 1989. The companion work is tonally more relaxed and stylistically more in keeping with its presumed late 1730s-early 1740s composition date. Italian-English texts. Roberta Invernizzi (soprano), L'Opera Stravagante, Gambe di Legno.
