Bach : music in the castle of heaven by John Eliot Gardiner( Book )

29 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Dutch and held by 1,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From one of Bach's greatest living interpreters: a landmark study which explains in wonderful detail how the composer worked, how his music is constructed, how it achieves its effects--and what it can tell us about Bach the man. Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the most famously unfathomable composers in the history of music. How can such sublime work have been produced by a man who (when we can discern his personality at all) seems so ordinary, so opaque--and occasionally so intemperate? John Eliot Gardiner has been studying and performing Bach ever since, and the fruits of this lifetime's immersion are now distilled in this remarkable book. It is grounded in all the most recent Bach scholarship but moves far beyond it as well, taking us as deeply into Bach's works and mind as perhaps words can. This is an unparalleled book about one of the greatest of all creative artists"--

The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( Recording )

53 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." --

Brahms's Requiem, completed in 1868, draws on the legacy of his forerunners, Heinrich Schütz and Johann Sebastian Bach.
