    Default Vivaldi / Handel question

    Help! I need a baroque ear to identify a couple of pieces, specifically tracks nos. 1 and 14 from the link below (requires RealPlayer). The first is from a Vivaldi concerto, but I have no idea which one (which number) or for what instrument. All the info we have for it is G Major. The other, track fourteen, is a non-vocal version of a Handel aria. I need to know the name of the opera or oratorio from which it comes, and if possible the name of the song itself. I have no idea if the aria lyrics themselves are in Italian or English.

    I don't know what is the Vivaldi's concerto.

    The Handel aria is actually a movement from his concerto grosso opus 6 no 12 (3rd movement - larghetto).
    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?
