Two souls live in my breast! A Faustian dilemma

The human struggle between earthly pursuits and heavenly salvation is traced by Bach and Vivaldi. While Bach, in his cantatas for alto solo, sings of the damnation of mankind and of heavenly redemption, Vivaldi brings the desperation of unrequited love to the fore in his dramatic cantata “Cessate, omai cessate”. This conflict of the two opponents is reflected in the double concertos by both composers.
