One of Handel’s most famous arias,

Ombra mai fù from Xerxes, is often just called “Largo from Xerxes.” It is a very simple, yet beautiful aria originally sung by a castrato, a male singer with the voice range of a female soprano. The subject of the song involves a topic that relates to many people. He is thanking a tree for the wonderful shade it provides on a very hot day. The concept remains so simple, yet many people will identify with the gracious relief that tree will provide and their thanks to be removed from the heat.

Parts:  BC and TC Solo, Piano Score
