Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Although [Manna's] contributions to opera belong primarily to the first 12 years of his career, they established his contemporary fame as one of the most important composers of his time... Contemporaries praised the suavity, vivaciousness and delicate beauty of his arias: Burney..., noted the ingenious instrumental accompaniment of the vocal solos, and lauded the music for its ‘fancy and contrivance’." -- Grove "...Although [Manna's] contributions to opera belong primarily to the first 12 years of his career, they established his contemporary fame as one of the most important composers of his time...
