Sebastian Hennig Boy soprano Sebastian Hennig is nearly ideal at 14 1/2 years in this original version of Pergolesi's work, paired with an (adult) male alto and accompanied by five string players plus organ. He sings in two arias and seven duets. This latest CD issue of a recording made in April 1983 gives short measure at only 37 minutes but is at bargain price. For a recording with two boy singers see under Gregor Bauernschmiedt.
