Halle Handel Edition

Links to the project

The “Hallische Händel-Ausgabe” is a critical complete edition of Händel’s oevre based on all known sources. It is made for theoretical and practical use. The Editorial Board is put together internationally. Each volume contains an introduction that consists of the origin history, the works’ heritage, and a discussion of performance questions. In each edition of vocal works there is a German and, if necessary, an English translation of the lyrics. 116 editions are planned with critical reports, libretti facsimiles of the operas and oratorios in 5 series, and about 10 volumes of supplements.
