cover imageLeipzig’s churches have a long and distinguished tradition of music-making. According to most accounts, sacred music in Leipzig reached its zenith in the years after 1723, when Johann Sebastian Bach became cantor at the Thomasschule. Less well known are the musical achievements of Bach’s predecessors as Thomaskantor: Sebastian Knüpfer, Johann Schelle, and Johann Kuhnau. One reason that the compositions of Bach’s Leipzig predecessors remain little known is that only a small portion of them survive. By the 1720s such pieces were considered old-fashioned, and most manuscripts were destroyed. Hence church music from late-seventeenth-century Leipzig survives not in the city’s libraries but in other collections. One such location is the Bodleian Library in Oxford, which holds the music manuscripts collected by the English apothecary James Sherard (1666–1738). Sherard’s collection includes eight compositions by Leipzig cantors, five of which survive nowhere else. These eight works are now available in Leipzig Church Music from the Sherard Collection (Y2-020).

New Publication: Complete Madrigals, Part 2 by Giovanni Maria Nanino

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 10:18:33 AM America/Chicago

Giovanni Maria Nanino: Complete Madrigals, Part 2
Edited by Christina Boenicke and Anthony Newcomb

Giovanni Maria Nanino (1543/44–1607) was one of the most important musicians of late-sixteenth-century Rome. It is especially in the madrigal that one can admire Nanino’s ability to bring together traditional stylistic elements of the mid-century madrigal with elements of the modern styles of the early seicento. This volume includes the book of madrigals published in 1581 with Annibale Stabile, together with those madrigals by Nanino published only in anthologies in the years 1574–86.

New Publication: Vespers for the Feast of the Assumption by Nicola Porpora

Friday, August 28, 2015 3:40:58 PM America/Chicago

Nicola Porpora: Vespers for the Feast of the Assumption Cover Image
A Reconstruction of the 1744 Service at the Ospedaletto in Venice

Edited by Kurt Markstrom

This edition recreates Porpora's vespers music for the feast of the Assumption in 1744 at the Ospedaletto in Venice by bringing together his settings of the five psalms of the Marian cursus and the Magnificat canticle, along with two settings of the Marian antiphon Salve Regina. Its scoring for an all-female choir consisting of divided sopranos and altos—the typical choral forces employed in the ospedali at this time—makes it a rare specimen of liturgical music composed expressly for the Venetian figliole.

Featured Publication: Manuel García’s Un avvertimento ai gelosi (ed. Teresa Radomski)

N065 cover

Manuel del Pópulo Vicente Rodríguez García (b. 1775, Seville; d. 1832, Paris) is widely recognized as one of opera history’s greatest tenors. Although his place in history has been secured by his renown as a performer and teacher, he was also an extremely prolific composer; his five chamber operas, composed in 1830–31, effectively illustrate the ample artistic requirements of early nineteenth-century singers. Un avvertimento ai gelosi, a one-act farsa giocosa with a small cast and piano accompaniment, was composed as a teaching piece for García’s students and features a humorous plot, charming arias, virtuosic fireworks, and a wide variety of dazzling ensembles that will still delight today’s singers and audiences.
