Henry Purcell by Robert King( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of Purcell the man very little is known, and his personality has to be reconstructed through the age in which he lived, the circumstances of his professional life, the men and women who knew him, and above all through his music. Robert King weaves a masterly narrative, bringing together politics (always in the forefront of Purcell's fortunes), religion, society and the theater, relating all this to the state of music at the time - instruments, techniques, foreign influences, and formal innovations

14 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though it's hardly ever performed or recorded, L'Allegro, Il Penseroso ed il Moderato is one of Handel's most beautiful and musically valuable oratorios. Peter Neumann, along with the Cologne Chamber Choir and the Collegium Cartusianum, has shown himself to be an empathic advocate of the work, the insider tip among Handel's oratorios
The sacred music by Claudio Monteverdi( )

Sacred music by Antonio Vivaldi( Recording )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This recording of Vivaldi's sacred music features the impressive if less familiar of the two settings of the Gloria, RV 588, the secod setting of the Vespers Psalm Dixit Dominus, and Nulla in mondo pax sincera, used with striking effect in the film Shine. With texts divided between soloists and chorus, both compositions bear all of the hallmarks of Vivaldi'd finest choral works: festive brilliance, dramatic changes of mood and texture, and passages of aching melancholy
