Re: [ARSCLIST] opera question

Hi, all: I may be looking for a needle in a haystack here, but on the
other hand, we collectively seem to come up with answers, so... in
assisting a student here, I am trying to determine if there is a
recording of the opera La Dori, by Antonio Cesti. It was written in
1657, and performed often around Venice during that century. I was
hoping that even Musical Heritage had done it, but having navigated a
pile of print and online sources, I come up with nothing. There are
manuscripts (facs of the original, which appears to be in the British
Library) but not one recording.
Can any of you tell me definitely, one way or the other, if this exists
It is difficult to prove a negative, but the only Cesti opera available
in any of the usual senses is the Orontea under Jacobs.
For such research, may I recommend Ommer's CD-ROM
Verzeichnis aller Operngesamtaufnahmen
from Digitale Bibliothek? Inexpensive and invaluable, though also
incomplete and not always correct.
