Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE------------------HISTORICAL ANTHOLOGY OF MUSIC: BAROQUE, ROCOCO, AND PRE-CLASSICAL MUSIC by Archibald T. Davison and Willi Apel.
Willi Apel and Archibald Davidson put together the "Historical Anthology of Music" with such intelligence, taste, and care that it is still a definitive resource after many years in print. This volume begins with an excerpt of recitative from Jacopo Peri's "Euridice" (the first surviving complete opera) and takes to the pre-cursors of Classical music. While great composers are included, so are a range of composers whose music is largely unavailable in popular editions. It is easy to find J.S. Bach's music, but how much Pelham Humphrey do you have on your shelf?
