Marc-Antoine Charpentier's "Pestis Mediolanensis" (The Plague of Milan): Dramatic Motet for Soloists, Double Chorus, Woodwinds,
H. Wiley Hitchcock (Editor)
DescripcióThe Plague of Milan (c. 1680) is commonly called an oratorio but is best described as a motet. The text, a description of the charitable acts of the Bishop of Milan during the bubonic plague of 1576, is based on Charpentier's holograph manuscript and includes a full score for soloists, double chorus, winds, and strings. This edition includes an analysis of the music and text, a translation of the test, a discussion of editorial problems, and a collection of writings on the work.
