Charles Brett's Baroque Anthology for Counter-tenor
Volume I - Italy and France
Editor: Charles Brett; engraved by Ashley Harries
for counter-tenor with realised continuo
This anthology comprises twenty songs, five each from Italy, France, Germany and England. A variety of composers is represented, from great masters, like Bach, Monteverdi and Purcell, to many lesser-known composers of the Baroque period - Humfrey, Lambert, Gilles, Kindermann and others. All are presented in new editions, with freshly composed realisations of the continuo. The songs are varied in difficulty, and should appeal to many counter-tenors from students to professionals.
