"The tragedy Rinaldo and Armida by John Dennis with 'musical entertainments' by John Eccles was performed in London at the Lincoln's Inn Fields Theatre in 1698. A rich example of 'dramatick opera,' this collaboration of Dennis and Eccles continues the hybrid form of musical theater nurtured earlier by Purcell and Dryden, a form that would soon give way to the hegemony of Italian opera in England. Rinaldo and Armida garnered wide-spread attention in its performance by Thomas Betterton's troupe amid the theatrical rivalry between the companies at Lincoln's Inn Fields and Drury Lane. Importantly, Dennis's design of the drama and his claims for the music are innovative, stressing the unusual degree of integration between the music and drama. This edition presents the spoken and sung texts as a continuous dramatic unit preceded by a transcription of the prefatory materials from the printed primary sources. The dances and one additional air associated with the play are also included in the volume." --

Incidental music by John Eccles( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Eccles's active theatrical career spanned a period of about sixteen years, though he continued to compose occasionally for the theater after his semi-retirement in 1707. During his career he wrote incidental music for more than seventy plays, writing songs that fit perfectly within their dramatic contexts and that offered carefully tailored vehicles for his singers' talents while remaining highly accessible in tone. This edition includes music composed by Eccles for plays beginning with the letters A-F. These plays were fundamentally collaborative ventures, and multiple composers often supplied the music; thus, this edition includes all the known songs and instrumental items for each play. Plot summaries of the plays are given along with relevant dialogue cues, and the songs are given in the order in which they appear in the drama (when known)." --

The judgment of Paris by John Eccles( )

11 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Eccles's opera The Judgment of Paris was one of at least four operas on the same libretto (written by William Congreve) composed for the 1701 Prize Musick competition sponsored by the London's Kit-Cat Club with the aim of promoting native English, all-sung opera; it won second place in the competition, after John Weldon's setting (Recent Researches in the Music of the Baroque Era, vol. 94, ed. David W. Music), though it later became the most popular of the settings composed for the competition. Scored for soloists, chorus, strings and continuo, with individual movements featuring transverse flute, recorders, and trumpets and timpani, the opera unfolds within a single act and depicts the mythological story of Paris and the three goddesses. This is the first publication of the opera in a critical edition." --
