The 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.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
