Georg Friedrich Händel: Comus

Vocal Score | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Composer Georg Friedrich Händel
Composer Thomas Augustine Arne
Editor Colin Timms
Publisher Novello and Co Ltd.
Instrumentation Opera

The latest addition to the Novello Handel Edition. A stage work of 1745 based on John Milton's classical masque Comus created from a compilation of songs by Handel and Thomas Arne, both pre-existing and original, with the text adapted by John Dalton. This is the first ever complete publication of the work and is edited by Handel scholar Colin Timms.

This work is for three or four Sopranos, Mezzo-Soprano, Tenor, one or two Bass Soli and Orchestra.

This edition is an 'important new contribution to scholarship, with Colin Timms continuing the work of Anthony Hicks in putting together an edition of work from various sources'. There are 'some fine movements to be found by both composers, not least the three airs and trio that Handel provided specially for performance in Exton Hall, Rutland, in 1745'.

Choir & Organ, November/December 2017

'Potential performers will appreciatre the excellent editorial preface. The print of this vocal score with piano reduction, though small, is very clear and well laid-out and orchestral parts, including a fully realised continuo part, are available from Novello.'
