Marylin Winkle Publishes Rare Edition of Eighteenth-Century Cantata

< 1 min read

School of Music musicologist Marylin Winkle has just published what promises to be the definitive version of Camilla de Rossi’s Fra Dori, e Fileno (c. 1710). Dulcamara Press, a company devoted to producing performance editions of historically underrepresented works, has produced the work with the goal of making it accessible both to student and professional performers.

“It is the only true modern edition of this work, based on its only extant manuscript,” said Marylin Winkle. “A previous 1984 score by Barbara Garvey Jackson used hand calligraphy and did not include instrumental parts. Sadly, the score had many errors, and was in need for correction.”

The new edition corrects the errors of the 1984 score. Winkle’s edition also includes biographical and critical notes, and an original translation of the libretto.
