Francesco Durante (31 March 1684 – 30 September 1755) was a Neapolitan composer who is remembered for his collection of Sacred music compositions. But within his repertoire is this little gem. A beautiful and evocative song that draws you in.
I love the movement that can heard in this piece. I imagine my voice representing the flowing fabrics of the lady’s skirt whilst she dances in the sea breeze. It’s full of Italian passion and it just makes me want to dance.
