By Howard E. Smither
Continuing the strategy of the former volumes, Smither treats the oratorio in each one language and geographical sector through first exploring the cultural and social contexts of oratorio. He then addresses aesthetic idea and feedback, treats libretto and track ordinarily, and provides designated analyses of the librettos and song of particular oratorios (thirty-one in all) which are of unique value to the historical past of the genre.
As a synthesis of specialised literature in addition to an research of fundamental assets, this paintings will function either a springboard for additional study and an important reference for choral conductors, soloists, choral singers, and others attracted to the historical past of the oratorio.
