Alessandro Scarlatti's "O Cessate di Piagarmi"from his 1683 opera "Pompeo" is a favourite of singers and singingteachers, being one of the early Italian arias often used in vocaltuition.  This arrangement adds a secondsoloist, providing a decorative balancing part to the original aria's melodicline. Scarlatti repeats his melody line in the original aria. In thisarrangement it is shared between the singers - soloist 1 singing it the firsttime, with soloist 2 singing a second part. On the repeat the singers swaproles. In this way each singer has the main tune once during thisarrangement.  There are additionaldecorations and ornaments in the repeated version.

Creating a duet from a solo aria gives singers the chance toparticipate in some vocal chamber music and add another dimension to theirperformance skills.
