'Senesino in London' works by G F Handel et al
G F Handel:
Sento Amor con novi dardi; Ch'io parta? Sì, crudele; Furibondo spira il vento (Partenope)
Cara sposa; Venti turbini (Rinaldo)
Pompe vane di morte... Dove sei, amato bene? (Rodelinda)
Ah! Stigie larve!; Già l'ebro mio ciglio; Ma la furia; Vaghe pupille, non piangete; Fammi combattere; Già per la man d'Orlando... Già l'ebro mio ciglio (Orlando)
