From Giuseppe to Joseph: A Possible New Borrowing Source for the Music of Joseph and His Brethren
Handel Yearbook 2018

This article examines the role of artistic borrowing in Handel’s oratorio Joseph and His Brethren. Through manuscript study, I suggest that Handel was aware of Antonio Caldara’s 1722 setting of the same text (in Italian), and that Caldara’s compositional choices in that work affected Handel’s own musical decisions.
