Description

Illustrating Handel's oratorios and masques in dramatic form--among them some of the highest achievements of musical drama ever written--Dean here begins by discussing general questions of history, style, and performace, and explains how the oratorios have been progressively misrepresented since Handel's day; subsequent chapters detail each of his 18 works in this genre.show more
