Mass for five treble voices by Francesco Gasparini( )

5 editions published in 2019 in Latin and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francesco Gasparini composed his Mass for Five Treble Voices for the figlie di coro (a famous all-female ensemble) at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice. Gasparini had become the Pietà's first full-time maestro di coro in 1701, and the mass was likely written early in his tenure. It is unusual in its lack of a bass part (scored for CCCAA with organ) and its inclusion of all five parts of the mass Ordinary (by 1700 most Venetian concerted masses fit the profile of the missa brevis, consisting solely of a Kyrie and Gloria). The work offers valuable insight into the ospedale repertoire, since a great deal of Venetian sacred music from this period has been lost. Based on an autograph manuscript, this edition makes Gasparini's mass available to scholars interested in sacred music of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries and enriches the repertoire for treble and women's choruses." --
Cantatas with violins by Francesco Gasparini( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in Italian and English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francesco Gasparini (1661-1727) was an unquestionably important musical figure of his time: he was a leading composer and theorist -- active in Venice and Rome -- and an esteemed teacher, and his continuo treatise, L'armonico pratico al cimbalo (Venice, 1708), was reprinted throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The present edition includes all of Gasparini's extant cantatas with violins and basso continuo. These works divide into two groups ... the second is a united set of sixteen cantatas composed in Rome in 1716-18 for Prince Ruspoli. Together they provide an interesting means of comparing Gasparini's early and late compositional styles and techniques, and they fill in a tessera in the complex mosaic of the Italian Baroque cantata during the early eighteenth century, a crucial period in the development of cantata aesthetics and musical style." --

Cantatas with violins by Francesco Gasparini( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in Italian and English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francesco Gasparini (1661-1727) was an unquestionably important musical figure of his time: he was a leading composer and theorist -- active in Venice and Rome -- and an esteemed teacher, and his continuo treatise, L'armonico pratico al cimbalo (Venice, 1708), was reprinted throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The present edition includes all of Gasparini's extant cantatas with violins and basso continuo. These works divide into two groups: the first comprises four cantatas dating from his first stay in Rome (in the 1680s), when he was a member of the congregazione of S. Cecilia and enrolled in Cardinal Benedetto Pamphili's orchestra ... Together they provide an interesting means of comparing Gasparini's early and late compositional styles and techniques, and they fill in a tessera in the complex mosaic of the Italian Baroque cantata during the early eighteenth century, a crucial period in the development of cantata aesthetics and musical style." --
