A multi-volume authoritative reference source for information about the life and career of George Frideric Handel. The life and career of George Frideric Handel, one of the most frequently performed composers from the Baroque period, are copiously and intricately documented through a huge variety of contemporary sources. This major multi-volume publication is the most up-to-date and comprehensive collection of these documents. Presented chronologically in their original languages with English translations and with commentaries incorporating the results of recent research, the documents provide an essential and accessible resource for anyone interested in Handel and his music. In charting his activities in Germany, Italy and Britain, the documents also offer a valuable insight into broader eighteenth-century topics, such as court life, theatrical history, public concerts and competition between music publishers. This volume covers the period of Handel's London opera career during which he achieved gradual independence from the Royal Academy opera company, but also introduced English theatre oratorios and wrote the music for the 1727 coronation.
