This volume of conductor's guide to choral-orchestral works of the classical period, is the fourth volume in Jonathan Green's study of the vast body of choral-orchestral repertoire. In this guide all of the masses, oratorios, cantatas, litanies, vespers and minor sacred works of Haydn and Mozart are carefully examined. For each work, the author has compiled the text source, duration, date of composition, date and place of premiere, location of manuscript materials, commercially available editions, a selected discography, a bibliography and a brief history of the work. Most importantly, the performance concerns for the choir, orchestra and soloists of each work are evaluated and described. This book hope to be an invaluable programming aid for conductors and a touchstone for anyone embarking on research into this music.
