Rinuccini, Peri, Monteverdi, and the humanist heritage of opera by Gary Alfred Tomlinson( )
12 editions published between 1979 and 1988 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Renaissance musical humanism, defined either as an interest in ancient music or as a general fascination with the relationship of music to the text it sets, has long been viewed as a most influential cultural force behind the birth of opera around 1600. But the humanist bases of the new genre are not so narrowly circumscribed as this. The first opera that has come down to us, L'Euridice of the poet Ottavio Rinuccini and the musician Jacopo Peri, manifests in its nature and in the circumstances of its creation humanist values and conceptions of the most fundamental sort
