Purcell Dido and Aeneas Vocal Score
This edition is founded on the two manuscript copies of the work which are still in existence: both date from the eighteenth century. Details of these manuscripts, and practical suggestions for the interpretation of Purcell's music, are given in the preface to the Full Score and Miniature Score. A facsimile of the first edition of the libretto (1689) is published separately.
Editors: Imogen Holst, Benjamin Britten
