The Purcell companion ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 747 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

8 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first part of the book considers purely musical issues, and covers a wide range of topics. Peter Holman looks at the importance of the Oxford sets of parts for Restoration Concerted Music in the overall picture of orchestral practice in the seventeenth century. This is followed by two organological essays, one on organs (Dominic Gwynn) and the other on violins (John Dilworth). The remainder of this first section has three studies on historical performance; Purcell's 'Exotick' trumpet notes (Peter Downey), Queen Mary's Funeral Music (Bruce Wood), and ornamenting Purcell's keyboard music (H. Diack Johnstone); and two on singers and singing; Purcell's stage singers (Olive Baldwin and Thelma Wilson), and voice ranges, voice types, and pitch (Timothy Morris)

Regina Mingotti : diva and impresario at the King's Theatre, London by Michael Burden( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 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'
