WHAT'S NEW - recent additions to the Fountayne Editions catalogue
Handel Overtures series
These editions are the first in what will be a complete collection of Handel Overtures. Needless to say, the overtures are a treasury of splendid and vintage Handel orchestral music which languish without performances due largely to the practical difficulties involved in putting on complete operas or oratorios. Performances, for example, of Joseph and his Brethren are scarce indeed but the four movement overture is particularly fine and it is truly regrettable that it is never played.
Works by James Ellis
Works for voice and piano, voice and strings, and solo harp.
Mozart Concert Aria K374
‘Or che il cielo a me ti rende’ was written in Vienna in 1781 for the male soprano Francesco Ceccarelli (1752-1814) who had travelled from Salzburg with Mozart accompanying the Archbishop Colleredo.
Motets for Double Choir
Here are two exquisite motets for double choir unaccompanied. An original contribution to the rich Anglican choral heritage, these works are inspired gems.
