Seite 102 - I have seen it performed at different periods in other countries, and well too, but no more to compare with its original performance than light is to darkness. All the original performers had the advantage of the instruction of the composer, who transfused into their minds his inspired meaning.
Seite 102 - Regini was working like a mole in the dark to get precedence. The third candidate was Maestro di Cappella to the Court, a clever shrewd man, possessed of what Bacon called, crooked wisdom ; and his claims were backed by three of the principal performers, who formed a cabal not easily put down.
Seite 86 - Grebus, the Frenchman, the King's master of the musick, how he understands nothing, nor can play on any instrument, and so cannot compose : and that he will give him a lift out of his place ; and that he and the King are mighty great...
