Founded in 1848, Royal Irish Academy of Music has functioned continuously since then, becoming one of the most prestigious and long-running conservatories of music in Europe. Its students arrive for the review of opera exams with works by Monteverdi and Händel: a madrigal and a comic cantata from the bucolic world of the golden age of bygone Greece. Not only was Monteverdi’s composition born in Italy, but the youthful Händel’s too: in 1707, in the service of Marchese Ruspoli. Numerous elements of the cantata of the latter, for many years believed to have been lost, were ‘recycled’ by Händel into several of his operas in a manner typical of this highly economical composer.
