Cantatas and Oratorios

Post by arglmann » Sat Mar 13, 2010 10:24 am

Hi everyone,

I wonder if someone knows where Gottfried Stoelzels "Cantatas for Pentecost" or his "Christmas Oratorio" might be. I'm checking the libraries right now, but to no avail at present.

If anyone could help it would be appreciated.

Many thanks,
Arglmann

For Stölzel's "Pfingstkantate(n)" see "Die Sammlung der Sing-Akademie zu Berlin, Teil 1 Von Axel Fischer" - SA 808 (various Nos.) on http://books.google.de/books?id=fjj6sC5 ... ed&f=false - maybe you receive help from there!

I did not google for Stölzel' "Weihnachtsoratorium".

Thank you kh0815,
I actually found all of it myself:
350 works are in the "Schlossmuseum Sonderhausen",
where I will go soon.

Thanks,

Dear everyone,

I wonder if you could help me in my hunt for
"O qual meco, o Nice", a cantata not from Alessandro, but from Domenico Scarlatti.
The original is presumably in the Vienna State Library, although I didn't find it there.
Could it maybe somewhere else?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, dear Caprotti, thank you for this information!

Meanwhile, I found something in he British Library:

R.M.23.b.27.(1-12.). ROYAL MUSIC COLLECTION. Scarlatti (Domenico).
Cantatas; 18th century. 12 cantatas: nos. 1 and 2 for two voices,
nos. 3-12 for solo voice, in score, with a figured bass for harpsichord,
and nos. 4 and 11 with 2 violins and figured bass. In the same hand throughout.

1. 16 ff. Se per un sol momento, a duo [sic].

2. 12 ff. Tirsi caro, a duo.

3. 6 ff. Se ti dicesse un core.

4. 19 ff. Pur nel sonno almen tal’ora.

5. 5 ff. Sospendi o man per poco.

6. 6 ff. No, non fuggire o Nice.

7. 7 ff. Qual pensier.

8. 6 ff. Fille gia piu non parlo.

9. 6 ff. Ti ricorda o bella Irene.

10. 6 ff. Con qual cor.

11. 20 ff. O qual meco Nice cangiata.

12. 6 ff. Di Fille vendicarmi vorrei.

Do you know if the Nr. 11 is the same nr. als the "O qual meco, O Nice" from above?
Hm, I should probably order it as well...

Thank you for your help,

They should be the same. I suggest Vienna, due to the enormous difference of costs between the two libraries.

Oops. Well, I have to leave Vienna, then :-)
Already placed the order in the BL...

But thanks for the information!

Following events recently in the "Musical Puns, Jokes, and Teasers"
thread, I was cornered into scanning this cantata by Weber.
He wrote 6 in total, but this is the only non-orchestral one, scored
somewhat strangely for piano, flute, 2 sopranos, tenor, bass, and choir.
It was written in 1821, and the vocal score of it, which omits the flute,
was published by Novello in England under the title 'Three Seasons'.
It is observed that the music of the final chorus was later used by
Weber in his opera Euryanthe.
