Overview

Handel's Dramatic Oratorios and Masques by Winton Dean

Illustrating Handel's oratorios and masques in dramatic form—among them some of the highest achievements of musical drama ever written—Dean here begins by discussing general questions of history, style, and performace, and explains how the oratorios have been progressively misrepresented since Handel's day; subsequent chapters detail each of his 18 works in this genre.
