Misc. Comments

  • Not sure where the "musica di Giacomelli ed Handel" comes from. RISM does not show the opera as under Handel's name, except for an aria listed as "Amor deh lasciami; Lucio Papirio", but it also is listed as "Elpidia (excerpts)". It seems Handel inserted this aria into two different larger works.
  • In Grove Music's article on Handel, this opera is listed as "by G. Giacomelli, Parma, 1729, slightly adapted". It would seem that Handel did very little toward the work as a whole.
