Abstract:Giacomo Antonio Perti (1661-1756) was one of the most well-known and highly-respected musicians in Italy during the late baroque period, although his music is scarcely known or heard today. In the past twenty years, access to his surviving works has become more available and as such, musicologists are beginning to see the importance of his oeuvre, which spans nearly seventy years. This study focuses on his extant Magnificat settings, and provides modern performer’s editions of all twelve settings, including alternate versions and revisions. While Perti’s music is firmly rooted in the contrapuntal tradition, the stylistic changes in his music over the course of his life are interesting reflections of the development of pre-classical style in northern Italy.
