Carey : Tragical history of the mare, The : Keyboard score, part(s) and cover page
Composer: Henry Carey (c.1687 - 1743)
Lyrics: Henry Carey
Carey was one of those Englishmen bemused by the success of Italian opera in London in the 1720s. This cantata "compos'd in the high style by Sigr. Carini" satirises the current fashion, by horseplay within the trappings of high art. It uses the mismatch of low subject and high falutin' treatment that was employed so successfully by The Beggar's Opera, four years later.
