Copyright by Boosey & Hawkes or Faber Music and fiercely protected. So it would not be a wise decision to post them here. Sorry. Imho Billy Budd is the finest, perhaps the most symphonic anyway (which to my mind is a good thing). So many to choose from, and not a dud amongst them (except perhaps the very early and untypical Paul Bunyan).
Yikes! Thanks for reminding me again the Copyright issues. Thanks for the advice !
Should make some orders now...

For those of you who are interested in libretto scans, check out the Munich library's recent work. There must be 150 new scans of librettos.

Those are not opera librettos, but just the plots of ballets and pantomimes

Spontini's scores, apart from 'La Vestale' are very rare. Vocal scores and even more piano solo scores were not published by Ricordi, probably because those opera were considered 'old' even at the time of Bellini and Rossini. So there wasn't a 'popular' diffusion of that music. Full scores are available in the main european libraries (many also in Italy) but copies will perhaps be made only thru digitalization, i.e. at very high prices. The most important resource should be the French NB in Paris (no catalogue online, in 2011 !!!)

Hello,
fellow pianophiliacs!
Attached is maybe the only source where the opera of Friedrich Himmel
"Il primo navigatore" is to be found.
Is there a friendly out there who could guide me along
about what are the procedures of getting a copy of this score?

Thank in advance,
Arglmann

This is the card of a libretto, not of a score.
anyway the two libraries are :

Biblioteca di studi teatrali Casa di Carlo Goldoni - Venezia - VE - [fondo/segnatura] CORRER - VENEZIA 58 A 83

Biblioteca nazionale Braidense - Milano - MI - [fondo/segnatura] Corniani Algarotti - Racc.Dramm.4889
