Description

John Abraham Fisher (1744-1806) is considered one of the most important English musicians and composers of his generation. The range of his compositional activities demonstrates the diversity of his interests. In addition to playing in theatres, he performed his own words at the pleasure gardens at Vauxhall and Marylebone, and also composed cantatas, anthems, an oratorio, symphonies, and chamber music. This volume gives evidence of his contributions to the musical life of not only the Covent Garden theatre, but British musical life in general.
