    Madness was a recurrent preoccupation with seventeenth century dramatists and the extreme, colourful texts inspired Purcell, Blow and their contemporaries to some of their most intense and dramatic settings, exploring the ever widening boundaries of expression and emotion. The idea of freedom from the torment of love and of lost love is a recurring theme. A few decades later Handel wrote some of his more expressive and dramatic music during his time in Italy from 1706. His great collection of Italian cantatas often deal with topics of freedom from betrayal and injustice alongside the loss of the heart’s liberty and life.
