Church Music of Perez & Jommelli By Dottori
Hardcover: $74.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a study of the church music by Davide Perez and Niccolò Jommelli and of how their styles evolved in relation to social and aesthetic influences. Both Neapolitans, they were amongst the... More > most eminent composers in eighteenth-century Europe. In many aspects their lives followed a parallel progress, interweaving with persons and institutions in Naples, Rome, Vienna, Venice, and Lisbon. Jommelli has always had a place in the histories of music as a reformer of opera seria. Perez however—a musician who after one of the brightest careers in mid-century operatic Italy, dedicated himself for his last twenty-three years almost exclusively to church music—was unjustifiably almost completely forgotten. The second part has to do with the funeral music. This comprises the Office and Masses of the Dead, and the Triduum offices, which is very similar to the former. Their music—which presents the Christian hope for personal immortality in a very sentimental and melancholic mood — is quoted extensively.< Less

Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly HARDBACK By David Lindsay
Hardcover: $54.54
Prints in 3-5 business days
Lindsay's fourth published novel, 'Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly' was first published in 1926 in the UK and released in the US rather inappropriately as 'Blade for Sale' in the same... More > year. 'Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly' is a humorous adventure set in the France of Louis XIV. Possibly the lightest and least fantastical of David Lindsay's novels, this romp through the realm of the Sun King nevertheless contains moments of high tragedy and tantalising glimpses of Lindsay's fascinating philosophy. Monsieur Gaston de Mailly is a soldier, an adventurer and, above all, a gentleman, trying to combat a disgraceful poverty in the year 1700, in a France where social norms are rapidly changing. An exciting adventure in its own right, this is a book no David Lindsay devotee will want to be without.< Less
