This arrangemant for string quintet is from "Ombra mai f�" an aria from the opera Xerxes by George Frideric Handel. The title, which translates from the Italian as Never has there been a shade, is the first aria of the opera. It is sung by the main character, Xerxes, in praise of a tree's shade as he sits underneath it. It is commonly known as Handel's "Largo", although the original tempo was larghetto. The opera was a commercial failure, lasting only five performances in London after its premiere. In the 19th century, however, the aria was rediscovered and became one of Handel's best-known pieces.
