Jakub Józef Orliński - "Alla gente a Dio diletta" (from "Il Faraone sommerso")
Among the world premiere recordings on the Polish-born countertenor’s programme is this aria by the Neapolitan composer Nicola Fago, ‘Alla gente a Dio diletta’.
Sung by Aaron, brother of Moses, it comes from the oratorio ‘Il Faraone sommerso’ (The drowned pharaoh), which tells the dramatic biblical story of the Exodus from Egypt. The flowing serenity of the aria is reflected in the dream-like atmosphere of this video, directed by James Darrah.
