Henry Purcell by Robert King( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 711 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

Ottone, rè di Germania by George Frideric Handel( )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handel's Ottone, re di Germania is presented here in a new recording by Max Emanuel Cencic and a superb cast, under the baton of George Petrou with Il Pomo d'Oro. Premiered in London in 1723, Orrone was one of Handel's most successful operas in his lifetime. This rare recording breathes new life into one of the master's great works and also features three "bonus" arias performed in the 1726 revival

Israel in Ägypten = Israel in Egypt by George Frideric Handel( )

6 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Latest release on VIVAT brings Mendelssohn's astonishing reconstruction of Handel's great oratorio Israel in Egypt. Mendelssohn's 1833 Düsseldorf performance has been painstakingly reconstructed from fragments and sources across Europe: the large and colourful orchestra, playing nineteenth-century instruments, produces vivid new sonorities, and the double choir sings magnificently. Listeners familiar with Handel's 1739 version will also find new numbers, significant changes to the order of movements and very different orchestrations. The work starts with a thrilling, pure-Mendelssohn overture, mixing life and energy with moments of exquisitely shifting instrumental colours. There is fine solo singing from solo sopranos Lydia Teuscher and Julia Doyle, alto Hilary Summers, tenor Benjamin Hulett, and bass Roderick Williams: Robert King and The King's Consort are on top form."--Presto Classical website
L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato by George Frideric Handel( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 264 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
