Recording of David Garrick’s 1769 “Jubilee” Seeks Support

UK charity Retrospect Opera seeks financial support for a Shakespearean project: a recording of the music composed for David Garrick’s great Shakespeare “Jubilee” of 1769, as subsequently embedded in Garrick’s sensationally popular musical comedy, The Jubilee, premiered the same year. Although the Jubilee is a seminal moment in Shakespeare’s reception history, and marked the consecration of Stratford-upon-Avon as a centre for literary pilgrimages, most of the music has never been recorded before. More detail about the project and how to contribute can be found here.
