Arias sung and loved by the greatest singers of the world are here in fresh, new versions. This edition: draws on original manuscripts and historical first editions, along with recent research of prominent musicologists, to meet a high standard of accuracy and authenticity; enhances your enjoyment of the arias with fascinating background information about their original appearance in cantatas and operas, and about their composers; corrects hundreds of errors -- even incorrect words, notes and composers' names -- which have accumulated as past publishers copied from each others' editions; removes Romantic era misinterpretations and 19th-century piano accompaniments, restoring the clear, bright sound of Baroque music. It will be easier than ever to learn the arias because the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet symbols removes doubts about correct pronunciation. It will be easier to sing the arias with meaning because the original Italian texts are translated into English in three ways: 1. a singable rhymed translation 2. a readable prose translation and 3. a literal translation of each single Italian word for those who are learning the language. - Back cover.
