Francesco Bartolomeo Conti Handel reused some of Conti's music for Cleotide in his "pasticcio" "Ormisda" (1730) performed at the Queen's Theatre. His music was also appreciated by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Conti's cantata "Languet anima mea", survives in a manuscript version from 1716 as arranged by Bach (BWV deest 1006).
Antonio Bernacchi In 1729 Handel took Bernacchi as his "primo uomo" for the second Royal Academy, in place of the departed Senesino. For Handel, Bernacchi created roles in "Lotario" (1729) and "Partenope" (1730). He also sang in revivals of "Giulio Cesare" and "Tolomeo", and in the "pasticcio" "Ormisda". Despite his fine European reputation, Bernacchi's success in England was mixed: though Charles Burney praised his intelligence as a singer, English audiences preferred Senesino.
Apostolo Zeno Zeno wrote the libretti for 36 operas with historical and mythological themes, including "Gli inganni felici" (1695), "Odoardo" (1695) "Faramondo" (1698), "Lucio Vero, Imperatore di Roma" (1700), "Griselda" (1701), "Merope" (1711, Edition, 1727), "L'Ambleto" (1712), "Alessandro Severo" (1716), "T'Euzzone" (1719), "Ormisda" (1721), "Artaserse" (1724), "Semiramide" (1725), Domenico Sarro's "Il Valdemaro" (1726), "Astarto" (1730), "Caio Fabbricio" (1733), "Euristeo" (published 1757), and "Sesostri re d'Egitto" (Prague edition 1760) as well as 17 oratorios. Among his literary works, the "Dissertazioni vossiane" are additions and corrections to "De historicis latinis" by Voss. His "Annotazioni" to the "Biblioteca della eloquenza italiana" by Giusto Fontanini were published posthumously. His correspondence ("Epistolario") is ample.
Eusebia (empress) "So then he entered Rome, the home of empire and of every virtue, and when he had come to the Rostra, the most renowned forum of ancient dominion, he stood amazed; and on every side on which his eyes rested he was dazzled by the array of marvellous sights. He addressed the nobles in the senate-house and the populace from the tribunal, and being welcomed to the place with manifold attentions, he enjoyed a longed-for pleasure; and on several occasions, when holding equestrian games, he took delight in the sallies of the commons, who were neither presumptuous nor regardless of their old-time freedom, while he himself also respectfully observed the due mean. For he did not (as in the case of other cities) permit the contests to be terminated at his own discretion, but left them (as the custom is) to various chances. Then, as he surveyed the sections of the city and its suburbs, lying within the summits of the seven hills, along their slopes, or on level ground, he thought that whatever first met his gaze towered above all the rest: the sanctuaries of Tarpeian Jove so far surpassing as things divine excel those of earth; the baths built up to the measure of provinces; the huge bulk of the amphitheatre, strengthened by its framework of Tiburtine stone, to whose top human eyesight barely ascends; the Pantheon like a rounded city-district, vaulted over in lofty beauty; and the exalted heights which rise with platforms to which one may mount, and bear the likenesses of former emperors; the Temple of the City, the Forum of Peace, the Theatre of Pompey,the Odeum, the Stadium, and amongst these the other adornments of the Eternal City. But when he came to the Forum of Trajan, a construction unique under the heavens, as we believe, and admirable even in the unanimous opinion of the gods, he stood fast in amazement, turning his attention to the gigantic complex about him, beggaring description and never again to be imitated by mortal men. Therefore, abandoning all hope of attempting anything like it, he said that he would and could copy Trajan's steed alone, which stands in the centre of the vestibule, carrying the emperor himself. To this prince Ormisda, who was standing near him, and whose departure from Persia I have described above, replied with native wit: "First, Sire," said he, "command a like stable to be built, if you can; let the steed which you propose to create range as widely as this which we see." When Ormisda was asked directly what he thought of Rome, he said that he took comfort in this fact alone, that he had learned that even there men were mortal. So then, when the emperor had viewed many objects with awe and amazement, he complained of Fame as either incapable or spiteful, because while always exaggerating everything, in describing what there is in Rome, she becomes shabby. And after long deliberation what he should do there, he determined to add to the adornments of the city by erecting in the Circus Maximus an obelisk, the provenance and figure of which I shall describe in the proper place."
