Baroqu-ish rocks in the sea

Back in ye olde 1700s they really enjoyed comparing emotional distress to storms out at sea or personal strength in the face of adversity to rocks beaten by furious waves. This is one of those arias, an outstanding bit from 1772’s Il sogno di Scipione. Although I’m not the greatest Popp fan, she does rock this rock.
