Description

This is a major milestone in Handel scholarship; the first definitive edition of the work. A comprehensive set of appendices contains draft material, revisions, rejected music, and details of the cuts and modifications made by the composer during the opera's revivals between 1724 and 1732. Included are suggestions for vocal ornamentation based on Handel's own practice, and the edition retains the original vocal ranges. Performance material is available on hire.show more

Review quote

'Anyone performing the work will need to consult, if not use, this score, and it is marvellous to have the work made so comprehensively available ... It is sturdily bound and the price, though it may seem high in comparison with the Dover reprint, is in line with current rates for full scores and is probably about half of what an equivalent HHA edition would cost.'
