Welcome

Cantata Editions and its affiliates make available the research, PDF editions and transcriptions of a number of musicologists and performers around the world. We specialise in publishing digital editions of 18th Century vocal music which are difficult to find or have not been reproduced in modern editions.

Our main focus is on the music of Nicola Porpora, Francesco Mancini, Giovanni BononciniLeonardo Leo and of course Domenico and Alessandro Scarlatti. We invite submissions for inclusion from anyone interested in the field and encourage discussion of issues concerning the genre.

All of our PDF editions are based upon the original manuscripts or contemporary copies/printings and editorial changes are clearly marked so that performers are able to make informed choices in preparing the works. Each listing has a preview of the music in PDF form and is imediately available after purchase.

We invite you to enter and enjoy our contribution to the world of this great vocal music!
