VOICEBOX
 

A different concept in modern editions of Baroque vocal music, designed to meet the needs of performers at all levels of experience: two publications in one. Each title consists of two books: the main score, containing the original vocal line and bass with a fully realised keyboard part written by the editor Timothy Roberts, a leading authority on both the repertory and its performance, and a separate partbook for voice and bass alone. Singers will find either equally practical to use, and their accompanists can choose the part that suits them best.

 

Vox 01: Thirteen Mad Songs Book One, edited by Timothy Roberts: £11.45

John Eccles: Oh! take him gently from the pile, Must then a faithful lover go? I burn, my brain consumes to ashes. Godfrey Finger: While I with wounding grief did look. Daniel Purcell: Morpheus, thou gentle god. Henry Purcell: Bess of Bedlam, Let the dreadful engines of eternal will.

Vox 02: Thirteen Mad Songs Book Two, edited by Timothy Roberts: £11.45

John Blow: Lysander I pursue in vain. John Eccles: Haste, give me wings. Henry Purcell: I’ll sail upon the dog-star, Beneath a poplar’s shadow lay me, From rosy bow’rs. John Weldon: Reason, what art thou? Appendix (anon): Tom of Bedlam.

Vox 03: Twelve Songs by John Blow, edited by Timothy Roberts: £11.45

Fairest work of happy Nature, Flavia grown old, Lovely Selina, innocent and free, No more the dear lovely nymph, O mighty God, who sit’st on high, Of all the torments, Oh! that mine eyes would melt into a flood, O turn not those fine eyes away, A Pastoral Elegy, Sabina has a thousand charms, Why does the morn’ in blushes rise? Why weeps Asteria?

Vox 04: Three Elegies by Purcell & Blow on the Death of Queen Mary, edited by Timothy Roberts: £11.45

John Blow: The Queen’s Epicedium ‘No, Lisbia, you ask in vain’. Henry Purcell: The Queen’s Epicedium ‘Incassum Lesbia, incassum rogas’; O Dive custos Auriacae domus.

Vox 05: Ten Erotic Songs by Purcell and his contemporaries, edited by Timothy Roberts: £11.45

Anon: By moonlight on the green. Samule Ackeroyde: Once slumb’ring as I lay. John Blow: Sappho to the Goddess of Love. Raphael Courteville: A lass there lives upon the green. John Eccles: Belinda’s pretty, pleasing form, I gently touch’d her hand, Why do I sigh and languish so? Richard Leveridge: A lusty young smith. Henry Purcell: Cease, anxious world. John Weldon: Panthea.
