Synopsis: The existence of two composers with the name Alfonso Ferrabosco, one of whom is the father and the other the son, would cause great confusion except for the work of various scholars, among them Richard Charteris. He has published the complete works of Ferrabosco the Elder in nine volumes and his articles on the composer have appeared in various international journals. As a companion volume to the Opera omnia, Pendragon Press offers this Thematic Catalogue, No. 11 in the series.
Discussed in the Preface are Ferrabosco's influence on his contemporaries, Byrd, Tallis, Parsons, etc.; the significance of his contribution to the development of church music in England; his first-hand introduction of continental techniques of composition to his peers; the problems of dating due to lack of autographs, and more. The lengthy Biographical Calendar is a detailed study of the events in the life of Alfonso Ferrabosco and contains many references hither to unpublished. Containing 242 incipits, this catalogue is arranged by genre and/or scoring. The appendices will enable scholars to locate Ferrabosco's pieces by title, to pinpoint references to poets and composers, to investigate literary sources, manuscripts sources, English versions of the French chansons and Italian madrigals, and more. Pendragon welcomes this addition to its series.
