Misc. Notes I simply extracted this particular aria and cropped out the excessive margins. This particular aria enjoyed a lot of fame in Italy through the 18th century and I thought it worthy of being included as its own file. It is from Act 1 of the opera. Please note that the voice part is in soprano clef.
