Clori, degli occhi miei; Deh! lasciate e vita e volo; Dolc’e pur d’amor l’affanno; Figli del mesto cor; Fra pensieri; Ho fuggito Amore; Irene, idolo mio; La solitudine: ‘L’aure grate’; Lungi da me, pensier tiranno!; Lungi n’ando Fileno; Nel dolce tempo; Qualor crudele; Quando sperasti, o core; Siete rose rugiadose; Son gelsomino; Stanco di piu soffrire
