Clue 3 — March 30, 2016

The Mystery Composer is mostly remembered today for his instrumental music, but he wrote a large amount of vocal music, including 13 operas. Only one has remained popular over the years and is still performed regularly on stages around the world. The work is based on a story from the Old Testament and was originally intended to be an oratorio. In this aria, the singer describes how spring is blossoming all around her, yet, in her heart, she feels like it is still winter.
