George Frideric Handel was born and educated in Germany, flourished in Italy, and chose to become British. One of the most cosmopolitan of the great composers, much of Handel’s music has remained in the popular repertory since his lifetime, and a broad variety of his music theatre works from Italian operas to English oratorios have experienced a dramatic renaissance since the late twentieth century. A large number of publications devoted to Handel’s life and music have appeared from his own time to the present day, but The Cambridge Handel Encyclopedia is the first resource to gather the full range of present knowledge and leading new scholarship into a single volume for convenient and illuminating reference. Packed with 700 informative and accessible entries both long and short, this book is ideal for performers, scholars, students and music lovers who wish to explore the Handelian world.

- Unprecedented reference guide to one of the most popular composers in music history, containing 700 A-Z entries, ranging from fascinating short summaries to detailed research articles
- Presents a wide range of supplementary information, including a fully comprehensive family tree of the composer and his ancestors, a new fully revised worklist and a survey of 50 modern Handel performers
- Written by over eighty international scholars, and including a Foreword by Christopher Hogwood, the book presents new research, featuring many key topics that have seldom received due attention before.
