Boyce, William: Solomon: A Serenata
Edited by Ian Bartlett
First published in 1996.
Dimensions (mm): 330 x 254 x 20
Scored for soprano and tenor soloists, SATB chorus and orchestra, the serenata Solomon is an outstanding example of the 18th-century pastoral genre at its most poetically rich and distinctive. At one time second only to the Messiah in popularity, it deserves equivalent notice today as a masterpiece of the English baroque and as a profuse flowering of Boyce’s exceptional talents.
