    Oratorio Anthology (Walters) [alto]

    This is the most serious and useful collection yet published of solo arias from oratorios, masses and cantatas. The literature was confined to work by major composers, and by-passes the dated oratorio literature found in previous collections. The most famous music is here, and so is interesting and less famous music by masters. There are new music engravings for each aria, and extensive historical notes and translations. Solo instrumental obbligato parts, which can be cut from the book, are included on appropriate selections.

    Includes: Agnus Dei from Mass in B minor (Bach); Agnus Dei from Messe Solennelle (Rossini); Bereite dich, Zion from Christmas Oratorio (Bach); Buss und Reu from St. Matthew Passion (Bach); But who may abide from Messiah (Handel); Eija, mater, fons amorisfrom Stabat Mater (Pergolesi); Erbarme dich, mein Gott from St. Matthew Passion (Bach); Es ist vollbracht from St. John Passion (Bach); Esurientes implevit from Magnificat (Vivaldi); Fac me vere tecum flere from Stabat Mater (Haydn); Fac ut portem from Stabat Mater (Pergolesi); Fac ut portem from Stabat Mater (Rossini); Father of Heav'n! from Judas Maccab?us (Handel); He was despised from Messiah (Handel); Inflammatus et accensus from Stabat Mater (Dvor?k); K?nnen Tr?nen meiner Wangen from St. Matthew Passion (Bach); Laudamus te from Mass in C minor (Mozart); Liber scriptus from Messa di Requiem (Verdi); O rest in the Lord from Elijah (Mendelssohn); O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion from Messiah (Handel); Qui sedes ad dextram Patris from Mass in B minor (Bach); Qui sedes ad dextram Patris from Gloria (Vivaldi); Que moerebat et dolebat from Stabat Mater (Pergolesi); Schlafe, mein Liebster from Christmas Oratorio (Bach); Schliesse, mein Herze from Christmas Oratorio (Bach); Thou art gone up on high from Messiah (Handel); Virgam virtutis tuae rom Dixit Dominus (Handel); Von den Stricken meiner S?nden from St. John Passion (Bach); Vouchsafe, O Lord from Te Deum Laudamus (Handel); Woe unto them who forsake Him from Elijah (Mendelssohn).
