Hello all,

I am a Bass singer and am doing PhD work in Czech art song and opera, but have recently joined a baroque ensemble in Toronto Ontario Canada. I have loved the Czech Baroque and am on the hunt for printed scores, or PDF's of Zelenka arias for Bass voice. In particular, I am looking for the score to Deus Dux Fortissime, ZWV 60. I am willing to pay, but have yet to find a published version of this piece. Any thoughts?

Also, i am fairly new to Zelenka, but have fallen in love with his works. Any other recommendations for Bass arias?

Cheers,

John

Hello,

You can find manuscripts made public here : http://digital.slub-dresden.de/kollektionen/
The ZWV176 (Mus.2358-I-1/a) has the #8 (p97) for Bass.

For the ZWV60, you can purchase a copy of the manuscript and edit your score.

Also there are arias for bass in the masses, check the free scores in the E-downloads.

Thanks for the link! Do you know a good link to purchase a copy of the ZWV60 manuscript? I would gladly do that, but have had trouble finding it through google and the like. Thanks!

Hello,

You can contact http://www.collegiummarianum.cz/en
maybe they have a score available.

or

You can get the autograph, but, according to Stockigt's book, it is severely damaged, contact her to know how much. (there is a sample chapter of her book talking about that work at the oup.com site).

To search the manuscript at the Dresden library:
http://www.slub-dresden.de/en/search/card-catalogues/
choose "Musikquellen bis 1983" and search "Zelenka" (you need java enabled in your browser)
the manuscript of ZWV60 is Mus 2358-D-76.

to request a digital copy:
http://www.slub-dresden.de/en/ask-for-information/
choose "Collections - Music"

for the price read Digitalisierungsauftrag at
http://www.slub-dresden.de/en/service/copying-scanning-printing/

Good luck,
SK
