|The phoenix which rises immortal from its ashes is the symbol of freedom from the bonds of love in this cantata - a mascot for the nymphs and shepherds of Arcadia. Aria 1 shows an unusual example of a theme from the Introduction being reworked into an aria. Arias in C major, G minor, A minor and B minor range from brilliant to pensive, robust to elusive, leading to the serene conclusion of the phoenix's ascent to heaven - in recitativo accompagnato.
