The Purcell companion( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Purcell has been acknowledged as one of England's greatest composers. Little is known about his life beyond his official appointments and their duties, but as a musician he excelled as a servant of the Court, the Church and the theatre, writing odes, welcome songs, sonatas, anthems, service music, and a series of operatic extravaganzas which fascinated the public during the 1690s. The Purcell Companion opens with four background chapters on his position in British musical history, on music in London during his lifetime, on his Italian connections and on his contemporaries. In the section on the music, Eric Van Tassel presents a new view of the church music, Bruce Wood re-assesses the odes, and Peter Holman writes perceptively about the instrumental music. On the theatre works, Edward Langhans considers their context, while Roger Savage studies the music for the operas and plays. Finally, Andrew Parrott deals with aspects of performance. A bibliography details research undertaken on the various aspects of Purcell's life and career. --From publisher's description

Performing the music of Henry Purcell( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'We all pay lip service to Henry Purcell, but what do we really know of him?', asked Ralph Vaughan Williams. As Nicholas Kenyon points out in his introduction to this volume, many of the circumstances of Purcell's life and music remain obscure. With the tercentenary of Purcell's death, much of his music is being performed, often for the first time for many years. This book, based on discussions at a conference in Oxford in 1993, attempts to answer some of the many questions of performance practice that have arisen

Regina Mingotti : diva and impresario at the King's Theatre, London by Michael Burden( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regina Mingotti was the first female impresario to run London's opera house. Born in Naples in 1722, she was the daughter of an Austrian diplomat, and had worked at Dresden under Hasse from 1747. Mingotti left Germany in 1752, and travelled to Madrid to sing at the Spanish court, where the opera was directed by the great castrato, Farinelli. It is not known quite how Francesco Vanneschi, the opera promoter, came to hire Mingotti, but in 1754 (travelling to England via Paris), she was announced as being engaged for the opera in London "having been admired at Naples and other parts of Italy, by all the Connoisseurs, as much for the elegance of her voice as that of her features". Michael Burden offers the first considered survey of Mingotti's London years, including material on Mingotti's publication activities, and the identification of the characters in the key satirical print "The Idol"
