Cantata BWV 20: “O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort”. Autograph Score and Performing Parts in the Possession of the Bach Archive, Leipzig. Commentary by Peter Wollny
Documenta Musicologica, II/52 (= Faksimile-Reihe Bachscher Werke und Schriftstücke, Neue Folge, [9]). Kassel, 2017. 24 x 35 cm, 24 + 64; 16 pp. Color facsimile of the autograph score and performing parts. (The score was acquired by the Bach Archive Leipzig in 2016, making it possible, for the first time, to reunite the original performance material and the autograph score.)

The poem inspired Bach to write one of his most impressive church compositions altogether. Scored for solo ATB, SATB chorus, 3 ob, tpt, 2 vln, vla, & cont.

The most important features of this Morte di Cesare are both the conservation of the manuscript of the 1789 version of Jacobinical and the variants used—by the authors themselves—for the creation of the first performance in the second Republic of Venice, the democratica one, at Teatro La Fenice, in 1797.

CESTI, Antonio, 1623-1669

Il Tito. Partitura in facsimile, ed. del libretto, saggio introduttivo a cura di Giada Viviani.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 5. Milan, 2012. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xc, 306 pp. Presented for the first time during the 1666 carnival at the Venetian theater of St. John & St. Paul, “Il Tito” of Nicolò Beregan and Antonio Cesti is an opera frequently cited in the musicological literature of the last 40 years. Surviving archival materials document the genesis of the score with an unusual precision and have clarified many details necessary for reconstructing the Venetian theater production system of the second “Seicento”. In spite of the importance of the work—a collaboration between a not-so-prolific yet widely appreciated librettist and one of the most popular composers of that epoch, there has never been a complete study of the musical and literary sources. The commentary to this new Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta volume finally fills this lacuna, reproducing the oldest and most complete manuscript score of Tito (preserved in the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana) together with a critical edition of the libretto and a comparative study of the three other musical sources that have survived.

GAUDIO, Antonio dal, fl.1669-1682

Almerico in Cipro. Partitura dell’opera in facsimile, edizione del libretto, saggio introduttivo a cura di Giovanni Morelli.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 7. Milan, 2005. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, lxvi, 207 pp. Line-cut of a contemporary ms copy (full score), and first edition of the libretto. Almerico in Cipro is a representative opera from a long period in which the Venetian Republic experienced military and political setbacks; the opera’s sentimental and extremely intricate plot, containing many absurdities, is woven around royal characters from the Mediterranean area. The musical treatment seems to hint at the emergent “da capo” aria soon to blossom. Although there is a lack of any relationship between the contemporary historical events that affected the life of the city and state (here, the war in the Peloponnese) and the fictional stories of the opera, there does exist a typically Venetian allegorical dimension.

Facsimile and First Edition Edited by Berthold Over and the Bavarian State Library Munich, in Collaboration with the Editorial Staff of the Halle Handel Edition.
Documenta Musicologica, II/34. Kassel, 2006. Oblong, 4˚, iv, 12, 24 pp. Color facsimile of the recently rediscovered autograph fair copy. This exciting find was made in 2004 by Berthold Over and presents a different version of the aria arranged for solo soprano and realized keyboard (it was originally written for solo voice and orchestra). The three arias and two recitatives are transposed up one step from the orchestral version. The Munich autograph also has been given additional ornaments including numerous trills and slides in the vocal part. The new source is also very instructive for questions regarding performance practice, as Handel did not merely reduce the musical texture of the aria to an instrumental upper voice, vocal part, and bass, but the left hand of the keyboard part is often in two voices, whether in real two-part counterpoint or in doubled octaves. The autograph realization departs in several respects from realizations commonly used today, being very full in its sonority, and sometimes both the the right and left hands have to play multi-note chords. The realization—in the “full-voiced accompaniment”—makes no attempt to avoid doubled thirds or parallel fifths and octaves. Preface in Ger/Eng, together with practical edition.

LOTTI, Antonio, 1667-1740

L’umiltà coronata in Ester. Partitura dell’oratorio in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Laura Zanella. [Ms. 17671, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vienna].
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 11. Milan, 2004. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xxvii, 243 pp. Line-cut of a contemporary ms copy (full score). Pietro Pariati’s oratorio set to music by Antonio Lotti and dedicated to Esther, Racine’s famous character, was composed in 1714. Intended for performance in Vienna, it was in reality Venetian by birth, being a remake of an oratorio performed in 1712 at the Mendicanti Hospital, entitled “Humilitas exaltata seu Esther regina”. The opera retains the strong “theatrical” character of its origins (implicit, but not over the top), so typical of the Venetian Hospital oratorios. This opera is a forerunner of Zeno’s “sacred musical tragedy”. Indeed, if one considers the specific musical form of Lotti’s truly dramatic intonation, it is a specimen of one of the first steps in the process that very gradually led to the genre of oratorio to merge with the theatrical repertoire over the course of the 1700s, as evinced by the great Pre-Romantic and Romantic “sacred dramas”.

Nerone - Nero. Partitura in facsimile. Edizione dei libretti. A cura di Francesco Giuntini. Saggi introduttivi di Francesco Giuntini & di Reinhard Strohm.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 14. Milan, 2013. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, cxxi, 129 pp. Nerone, a “tragedia per musica” by Agostino Piovene, received its first staging in Venice in 1721 with music by Giuseppe Maria Orlandini, but won great success two years later in Hamburg in the version by Johann Mattheson, who retained the original arias, translated the recitatives into German and provided new musical settings for them, and added a few pieces of his own composition. In addition to a score corresponding to the Hamburg version (D-B, Mus. ms. 16370), the volume contains editions of the Italian libretto of 1721 and the German one of 1723. The opera is one of the most advanced manifestations of the reformist tendencies of the early eighteenth century: this is a genuine tragedy, inspired by the Britannicus of Racine, that concludes with a simple recitative given to Agrippina accusing her assassins before her killing.

MONTEVERDI, Claudio, 1567-1643

L’Incoronazione di Poppea. [Bibl. Nazionale Marciana, mus. ms, IT IV, no.439 and I No, Coll. 6.4.1].
Bibliotheca Musica Bononiensis, IV/81. Bologna, 2/ 1994. Oblong, 33 x 22 cm, 12, 109 pp. (Rpt. of Milan, 1938 edition). Line-cut of the score rediscovered by Taddeo Wiel in 1888 and at first believed to be the autograph. Containing only 14 sinfoniae or ritornelli, mostly written in two and three parts, the ms leaves in doubt the orchestration (in the Naples ms, rediscovered in 1930, all the symphonies are carefully written out in four parts). Both surviving sources are posthumous and were probably intended for performances outside of Venice and as such may contain transpositions and adjustments to the original score. Foreward by Sergio Martinotti. Limited edition of 250 copies. Linen. $105 [item no.424]


L’Incoronazione di Poppea. Facsimile della partitura di Napoli. Edizione del libretto a cura di Lorenzo Bianconi. Saggi introduttivi di Gino Benzoni e Alessandra Chiarelli.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 2. Milan, 2011. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xcvi, 233 pp. Within the history of opera L’incoronazione di Poppea (Venice, 1643), with a libretto by Giovan Francesco Busenello and music attributed to Claudio Monteverdi, holds a special place, being the very first opera on a historical subject: instead of Daphne, Orpheus or Adonis, we meet the emperor Nero, the empress Octavia, the courtesan Sabina Poppea and the philosopher Seneca. A mocking cynicism pervades the opera, which is drawn from the Annals of Tacitus and from a Latin tragedy attributed to Seneca (Octavia): one recognizes in it the imprint of the philosophical and moral libertinism cultivated by the Accademia degli Incogniti. This volume reproduces the manuscript score preserved in Naples. Like the manuscript in the Biblioteca Marciana (already reproduced in facsimile in 1938), this one is the product of several hands: Francesco Cavalli, perhaps Benedetto Ferrari and probably an unknown Neapolitan composer. In his introductory essay, the historian Gino Benzoni delineates the reception during the 17th c. of Tacitus, the main basis of the opera. Alessandra Chiarelli clarifies the complex web of sources for the music and libretto. Lorenzo Bianconi contributes editions of the “scenario” (1643), the text as its author chose to publish it (1656) and the variants of the Neapolitan libretto (1651).

Documenta Musicologica, I/39. Kassel, 1998. 25 x 32 cm, xvi, 112 pp. Halftone of the Ricciardo Amadino print (Venice, 1609), and Act V of the libretto. The edition is remarkable for a number of reasons. For one, it is an unusual presentation of the music—in score—not altogether unknown, but relatively rare at this date, where the music centers on harmony and the basso continuo. Secondly, the print is a “commemorative” or “souvenir” edition”; the title page states that it was first performed “in Mantua l’anno 1607”, taking place under the protection of Prince Francesco Gonzaga in the “Academia degl’Invaghiti”. Several annotations in the score, usually in past tense, underline this peculiar aspect: “this chorus was accompanied by ...”, “this dance number was sung to the accompaniment...”, this ritornello was played...”, etc. Preface (Ger-Eng), including a detailed critical apparatus, by one of the great Monteverdi specialists.

In spite of its positive reception by contemporary scholars, it was not able to gain acceptance against the time-honored and by then poetically backward Lobwasser Psalter (Leipzig 1573) as the hymnal of the reformed church in Germany, and fell into disuse after the middle of the 17th century.

ORLANDINI, Giuseppe Maria, 1676-1760

Nerone - Nero. Partitura in facsimile. Edizione dei libretti. A cura di Francesco Giuntini. Saggi introduttivi di Francesco Giuntini & di Reinhard Strohm.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 14. Milan, 2013. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, cxxi, 129 pp. Nerone, a “tragedia per musica” by Agostino Piovene, received its first staging in Venice in 1721 with music by Giuseppe Maria Orlandini, but won great success two years later in Hamburg in the version by Johann Mattheson, who retained the original arias, translated the recitatives into German and provided new musical settings for them, and added a few pieces of his own composition. In addition to a score corresponding to the Hamburg version (D-B, Mus. ms. 16370), the volume contains editions of the Italian libretto of 1721 and the German one of 1723. The opera is one of the most advanced manifestations of the reformist tendencies of the early eighteenth century: this is a genuine tragedy, inspired by the Britannicus of Racine, that concludes with a simple recitative given to Agrippina accusing her assassins before her killing.

PERGOLESI, Giovanni Battista, 1710-1736

Stabat mater für Sopran, Alt, Streicher & Bassso Continuo. Faksimile des Autographs herausgegeben von Tineke Steenbrink.
Magdeburg, 2013. Oblong, 4°, 88 pp. 4-color facsimile of the autograph score preserved in the Benedictine Abbey of Monte Cassino. Although Pergolesi’s œurve is often subject to misattribution, the Stabat mater in C minor is a genuine work (possibly the composer’s last), commissioned by the Confraternità dei Cavalieri di San Luigi di Palazzo (Naples). The Order presented an annual Good Friday meditation in honor of the Virgin Mary and Pergolesi’s setting replaced the one by Alessandro Scarlatti composed only 9 years earlier. This moving setting—in striking “durezze e ligature” style—conveys the story of the suffering of the Virgin Mary at the foot of the cross; it went through numerous reprinting in the 18th c. and inspired many composers including J.S. Bach. Although the work is performed today with soprano and alto solists, string orchestra and basso continuo, the original called for castrati singers (similiar to Mozart’s motet “Exultate Jubilate”). The score has many ambiguous passages, so this facsimile edition, the first of its kind, will be an important asset to scholars and musicians alike. Wrappers. $74 (more info... ) [item no.9318]

[Vocal music, solo voice, bc, selections] The Gresham Autograph. Facsimile. Introduction by Margaret Laurie and Robert Thompson. [Gresham College, London, on deposit in Guildhall Library].
Published for Gresham College and The Purcell Society. London, 1995. Oblong, 33 x 25 cm, xiii, 154 pp. Halftone of the autograph issued on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the composer’s death. Rediscovered in 1911, the Gresham autograph—named after the college in whose library it came to rest in the 19th c.—is an anthology of 48 songs, all but the last 3 in Purcell’s hand. The book, starting as pre-bound volume of ruled music paper, was probably purchased new by Purcell. Into this prepared book the composer copied songs from a variety of larger works. The presence of the opening 6 items from the dramatic opera The Fairy-Queen suggests that he started to use the book some time in the second half of 1692. After an initial spurt of activity, the songs were copied in chronological order, the last appearing to have been added in the middle of 1695. The contents include tunes from the Queen Mary odes (1693-94), the St. Cecilia’s Day ode (1692) and Dioclesian, together with numbers from incidental music to 16 plays, including The Richmond Heiress, Abdelazer and Rule of a Wife. There are also 11 independent songs. The purpose of the book is not clear, some believe that it was for Purcell’s own use as a singer, others that it is a “pupil’s” volume. In any case this facsimile stands as one of the most important and imaginative contributions to Purcell literature. Cloth (adapted from Michael Burden’s review). $160 (more info... ) [item no.7257]

Croft, William. Canticles and Anthems with Orchestra. Edited by Donald Burrows.
Musica Britannica, XCI London, 2011. 4º, li, 207, 26 pp. Modern critical edition. William Croft's career as the leading native-born composer of English church music was established in the period between the death of Purcell and the arrival of Handel in London. His education took place among musicians from Purcell's circle, and his style was modified by the influence of Handel's 'Utrecht' Te Deum and Jubilate of 1713. All the music in this volume was composed for various royal church services that took place between 1709 and 1720, in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace and in St Paul's Cathedral. The contents include the Te Deum and Jubilate Deo, sung at the coronation of George I, and the anthems The Lord is a sun and a shield, O give thanks unto the Lord, and call upon his name, O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious, and Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous. Buckram. $164 [item no.6925]


Motets and Anthems. Edited by Jonathan Wainwright.
Musica Britannica, XCVIII. London, 2015. 4º. 176 pp. With the completion in this volume of the corpus of Richard Dering’s vocal music available in modern scholarly editions, we are now in a position to acknowledge fully his contribution to 17th-c. music. The contents include his entire sacred output in English (none of which was published in his lifetime), two verse anthems, two contrafacta, and one sacred song. There are also 18 motets for five voices and continuo. These Cantiones Sacrae, printed in Antwerp in 1617 by the Flemish publisher Pierre Phalèse the younger, are more typical of the impassioned Counter-Reformation motet style of Giovanni Gabrieli, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, and another émigré Catholic composer working in the Low Countries at the time, Peter Philips. Buckram. $150 [item no.6788]


Dering, Richard. Motets for One, Two or Three Voices and Basso Continuo. Transcribed and Edited by Jonathan P. Wainwright.
Musica Britannica, LXXXVII. London, 2008. 4°. 161 pp. Modern edition. The music of Dering forms a lively commentary on the complex artistic interchange between England and the continent in the early 17th century and the picture is extended with this collection of small-scale settings of Latin texts with continuo accompaniment. Performed both in the chapel of Queen Henrietta Maria and in the residential quarters of Oliver Cromwell, these pieces were clearly much in demand for intimate devotional observances. Motets from printed and manuscript sources are included, as well as incomplete works plausibly attributed to the composer. Buckram. $162 [item no.6691]

Eighteenth-Century Psalmody. Edited by Nicholas Temperley and Sally Drage.
Musica Britannica, LXXXV. London, 2007. 4°. xlvi, 345 pp. Modern edition. The contents of this volume give a comprehensive account of the great variety of musical forms used in the parish church and Nonconformist worship in the 18th century. Each of the 103 pieces has been chosen because the editors believe it to be both rewarding to perform and to listen to. At the same time, they have sought to represent every important development in English psalmody during this period of profound social and artistic change. Buckram. $190 [item no.6654]


Storace, Stephen. Gli Equivoci.
Musica Britannica, LXXXVI. London, 2008. 4°. xlvi, 399 pp. Modern edition. This is the first published version of a major comic opera written in 1786 for Vienna’s Burgtheater, to a da Ponte libretto adapted from Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. A pupil of Mozart, Stephen Storace was a major figure in English opera of the late 18th c. and Gli equivoci is a unique testament to his versatility and promise. The work is issued in a reduction for voices and keyboard, with an English singing translation. Buckram. $198 [item no.6682]

This exceptionally beautiful and illustrated publication is the scholarly outcome of this event containing detailed descriptions of, and commentaries on more than 150 manuscripts, prints, treatises and archival documents. 2 sections are dedicated mainly to plainchant sources and liturgical manuscripts, one elaborates on sources of polyphony and music theory from the North of France and a final section is dedicated to Charles Edmond Henri de Coussemaker (1805-1876), who was a pioneer in listing and studying music sources from the North of France. A lot of attention is paid to his vast private collection (more than 1600 books, prints and mss) and to the large number of pieces which found their way into the collections of the Brussels Royal Library and the Library of the Brussels Royal Conservatory.

[Busse Berger, Anna Maria and Massimiliano Rossi] Memory and Invention. Medieval and Renaissance Literature, Art and Music. Acts of an International Conference (Florence, Villa I Tatti, May 11, 2006). Edited by Anna Maria Busse Berger and Massimiliano Rossi.
Villa i Tatti - The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, 24. Florence, 2009. 8º, xix, 175 pp. The art of memory—ars memorativa—profoundly impacted Western culture throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Ever since Aby Warburg inscribed the word Mnemosyne over the door of the institute that bears his name, modern scholarship has increasingly recognized and explored the central role of memorization, with all its various techniques and applications, in the practice of writers, composers, and artists. This volume presents the papers of a conference held at Villa I Tatti on May 11, 2006, conceived and organized by Anna Maria Busse Berger and Massimiliano Rossi. Ranging from literature and music to painting and architecture, the eight essays collected here pose new questions about the relationship between memory as a tool for creative expression and its formative impact on patterns of thought and modes of organizing knowledge.
