Item Number: VV.VIV-1830

Cecilia Maria Barthelemon (c. 1770) was active as a soprano, harpist, keyboardist and composer. In this piece she uses dramatic pacing, contrast of moods between themes, and exploits the power of rests in the programmatic re-telling of the capture of the Cape. The story is told in the titles of the movements and concludes with a rousing chorus praising the heroes.
