Concerts of Ancient Music (1786-1848)

Description
A collection of programmes and wordbooks for the Concerts of Ancient Music, given during the seasons 1786, 1789, 1791, 1798 and 1800-48 (missing 1811), held as a series of bound volumes (one per season).

All workbooks provide the names of the vocal soloists.
