Samuel Wesley (1766-1837) : a source book by Michael Kassler( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed as a child prodigy and later acclaimed as England's finest extempore organist, Samuel Wesley - son of Charles Wesley and nephew of John Wesley, the founders of Methodism - is best known today for his musical compositions and for his promotion of the music of J.S. Bach." "At the heart of this source book is a calendar of Samuel Wesley's correspondence. The editors date and summarise the content of over 1100 surviving letters and other documents, most of which have not previously been published. The book accordingly reveals considerable new information about Wesley and his complex personal affairs, including his incarceration for debt and his confinement in a lunatic asylum for a year. Many details are provided about London musical life in the era from Boyce to Mendelssohn that prior scholars have not taken into account." "The book also presents a chronology of Wesley's life, a descriptive list of his nearly 550 musical and literary works, a discography, an iconography and a bibliography. It therefore is the most comprehensive available reference source for Wesley's life, times and music."--Jacket
The English Bach awakening : knowledge of J.S. Bach and his music in England, 1750-1830 by Michael Kassler( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The English Bach Awakening concerns the introduction into England of J.S. Bach's music and information about him. Hitherto this subject has been called 'the English Bach revival', but that is a misnomer. 'Revival' implies prior life, yet no reference to Bach or to his music is known to have been made in England during his lifetime (1685-1750)."--Jacket
Charles Edward Horn's memoirs of his father and himself by Charles E Horn( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Horn's memoirs provide numerous details of English musical life in the Georgian era not previously known to scholars. They are supplemented in this book by transcripts of four other autobiographical accounts of the Horns, a summary of their extant correspondence and a chronology of their activities."--Jacket
The music trade in Georgian England by Michael Kassler( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In contrast to today's music industry, whose principal products are recorded songs sold to customers round the world, the music trade in Georgian England was based upon London firms that published and sold printed music and manufactured and sold instruments on which this music could be played. The destruction of business records and other primary sources has hampered investigation of this trade, but recent research into legal proceedings, apprenticeship registers, surviving correspondence and other archived documentation has enabled aspects of its workings to be reconstructed. The first part of the book deals with Longman & Broderip, arguably the foremost English music seller in the late eighteenth century, and the firm's two successors - Broderip & Wilkinson and Muzio Clementi's variously styled partnerships - who carried on after Longman & Broderip's assets were divided in 1798. The next part shows how a rival music seller, John Bland, and his successors, used textual and thematic catalogues to advertise their publications. This is followed by a comprehensive review of the development of musical copyright in this period, a report of efforts by a leading inventor, Charles 3rd Earl Stanhope, to transform the ways in which music was printed and recorded, and a study of Georg Jacob Vollweiler's endeavour to introduce music lithography into England. The book should appeal not only to music historians but also to readers interested in English business history, publishing history and legal history between 1714 and 1830."--Provided by publisher

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Memoirs of the Court of George III presents annotated and indexed editions of four works whose authors associated with the court in different ways. Charlotte Papendiek and several members of her family were servants of the royal household. Mary Delany and Lucy Kennedy, although not employed by the court, lived in Windsor in 'grace and favour' accommodation provided by the king and had frequent contact there with the royal family and the court. Queen Charlotte was at the centre of court life and controlled her own establishment within the royal household."--Page xv
