I have one more arrangement of “Se fiera belva ha cinto” to go, then I start poking around for another aria from “Rodelinda” with a nice intro. I could mull over which one I’d like to use, but I really have no idea which one’s going to spark something in my head. I’ve said that I like “Sospetti, affetti, e timori,” and I do. It might be that — but it might be another Senesino tune. I do like the ones that sit in that area of the voice best. Then, I want to move onto a bunch of ragtime arrangements of full arias from “Giulio Cesare,” but that may be competing with a few other things rattling around up there.
So for now, one more take on “Se fiera,” and then I’m 75% done and down to only one more aria intro.
