This book fills a major gap in historical music literature. An almost inexplicable gap, considering the fame the four female «choirs» of Venice’s hospitals gained for their excellent performances and artistic cooperation with many famous composers in the 18th century. With many previously unpublished details, this monograph, the fruit of systematic research work, traces the history of the institutions, the context of the supply of music, the characteristics of the choirs and their repertoires.
