About this Item

Small octavo. Modern marbled wrappers. [1] (title), [2] ("Direttori della Musica"), 3-26, 1f. (printer's note) pp. With decorative woodcut device to p. 26.Minor foxing, heavier to endpapers. Probable First Edition. Rare. Worldcat (2 copies only, at the Universities of Chicago and Dayton). OCLC no. 57468047.Luigi Moroni, Gaetano Capocci, and Giuseppe Negri are named as the "Direttori della Musica." Negri has provided the libretto for four of Verdi's works, and one each for Rossini and Donizetti. Two more texts by Salvatore Martini are set to music by Moroni and Mercadante.Verdi's first contribution, "Salve, o Madre: un sacro patto tutti stringe i figli tuoi," comes from the opening chorus of La Battaglia di Legnano (1849); the second, "Silenzio misterio," from the opening chorus of I due Foscari" (1844); and the third, "Plaudiam di letizia," from the opening chorus of the Act I finale of Stiffelio (1850). We have been unable to identify Verdi's final contribution, "Regina dell' alme," Rossini's "Pura stella-del mattino," Mercadante's "Sacro alla pace degli eletti," and Donizetti's cantata, "Celeste un' aura dal tempio move." An intriguing source of libretti for little known works of some of the 19th century's most renowned composers.We would like to thank Dr. Philip Gossett for his kind assistance in the cataloging of this item.
