Zipoli - Aria

Domenico Zipoli (1688-1726) - Aria
Arranged for alto or bass flute and piano by Carla Rees

Zipoli was an Italian baroque composer, who was taught for a short time by Alessandro Scarlatti. He was an organist, and best known for his keyboard music. After establishing himself in Rome, he joined a group of missionaries and is known to have arrived with them in Buenos Aires in 1717, where he worked as director of music in a Jesuit Church. He completed his training as a priest but was never formally ordained.

This short Aria was originally written for cello, and this edition includes transpositions for either alto or bass flute.
