Tancrède (Paris Opéra, 1702) - tragédie en musique by André Campra and Antoine Danchet, Introduction by Antonia L.Banducci, a biography of André Campra by James R. Anthony, and a commentary on three notated dances from the opera by Judith L. Schwartz. French Opera in the 17th and 18th Centuries No. 18. "The introduction to Tancrède includes a biography of the librettist, Antoine Danchet, extensive discussions of the Tancrède libretto and score, and overviews of the opera's performance history and dramatic parodies. The full orchestral score reproduced in facsimile dates from 1738 and reflects Campra's revision from a five-part to a four-part string texture. To provide scholars and performers with complete access to the original work, an appendix to the edition offers a transcription of the original fifth part (the quinte de violon) as well as several other sections of the original, which Danchet and Campra subsequently revised."
