Jonathan Keates original biography of Handel was hailed as a masterpiece on its publication in 1985.

Book: Hendrix at Home - Christian Lloyd

Our new Hendrix Flat Exhibition book. Exclusively sold here!

Jimi Hendrix called the flat at 23 Brook Street, in London's Mayfair, 'my first real home of my own'. He arrived here when his fame as the greatest rock guitarist of his era was at its height. But the period also marked a time of re-assessment for him, as he searched for new directions in which to take his life and his music.

By focusing on this key moment in Hendrix's extraordinary story, using extensive original research, Christian Lloyd's book brings a fresh perspective on our understanding of Jimi Hendrix, both as a man and as a musician.

Book: John Rich: The Man Who Built Covent Garden Theatre

John Rich (1692-1761) was the theatre manager who built the first Covent Garden theatre in 1732, and then ran it for 29 years until his death. Before this he had run the Lincoln's Inn Fields theatre for eighteen years, where he had his first major success with The Beggar's Opera. He was a major figure in London's theatrical life and gave his support for G.F. Handel, providing venues for performances of his later operas and oratorios.

For years John Rich was considered to be uneducated and illiterate. Recently his life and work have come in for new appraisal, challenging the previous depictions. This book contains much original research that cannot be found elsewhere.

 

£15.00

Book: Messiah - Jonathan Keates

Jonathan Keates tells the story of the composition and musical afterlife of Handel's masterpiece: he considers the first performances and its place in Handel's output; he looks at the oratorio itself and its relationship with spirituality in the age of the Enlightenment; and he examines why Messiah became such an essential element in the national culture of Britain.

Illustrated with beautiful images, including the original score of the work, Messiah is a richly informative and affectionate celebration of a high-point of Britain's Georgian golden age.

Book: Pocket Guide to Handel - Edward Blakeman

The Faber Pocket Guide to Handel offers a detailed but accessible exploration of George Frederick Handel, his composition, and his legacy. A larger-than-life figure in his time, Handel's reputation has been less than steady since his death in 1759. Was he (in the words of Berlioz) just 'a great barrel of pork and beer', or (as Handel himself claimed) truly 'the master of us all'? This lively Pocket Guide goes in search of the composer who wrote the Messiah, Water Music  and much more.

Handy for browsing and reference, key features include:
- Handel's life: year by year
- Handel's operas: a complete guide
- Essential Handel
- Picturing Handel
- Handel on CD and DVD
- Handel Online

Edward Blakeman assesses how Handel's works have stood the test of time and why they can still speak thrillingly to us today. With recommendations throughout for listening, further reading, and web surfing, this is the ideal guide for music lovers who want to discover the great composer for themselves.

Book: Starting at Zero - Jimi Hendrix

Despite spending just four years in the spotlight, the sheer impact and originality of Jim Hendrix's music placed him for ever among the musical giants.

Modest and intensely private, Jimi was shrouded in intrigue from the moment he came into the public eye, and the mystery has only grown with time. Much has been written about him by fans and critics. He did, however, leave his own account of himself locked away like a Chinese puzzle in his many interviews, lyrics, writings, poems, diaries and even stage raps. Starting At Zero brings all these elements together. The result is an intimate, funny and poetic memoir - one that tells, for the first time, Jimi's own story as only he could tell it.

£8.99

Book: Through Gypsy Eyes - Kathy Etchingham

Kathy Etchingham was the inspiration for many of Hendrix's best-known songs. She made a home here in Brook Street with Jimi and was the inspiration for much of what is know here in the Hendrix Flat and exhibition. This is a story of the 1960s, of Kathy's life with Jimi Hendrix and the truth behind his untimely death. Exclusively sold here!
