Arne, Thomas: The Judgment of Paris
Edited by Ian Spink
First published in 1978
Dimensions (mm): 330 x 254 x 14
Composed in 1740, this is a fascinating late example of the English masque tradition, and a relatively early work by a composer who began to occupy a central role in the life of London’s musical theatre at about the time when Handel was abandoning Italian opera in favour of oratorio.
