The Eighteenth Century French Cantata


The first edition of this book has become the classic study of one of the most popular musical forms in early 18th-century France, not only because it documents and examines its considerable repertoire for the first time, but also because it places the genre in the wide context of both French and Italian baroque music styles. This new edition incorporates research by the author and other scholars that has appeared during the twenty years since the first edition, reflecting today's growing interest in French baroque music. It also features a new chapter dealing with the French cantata in performance.
