Abstract:

Jacob M. Coopersmith (1903-1968) was an American musicologist, Handel scholar, performer, conductor, teacher, and music librarian. In 1932, Coopersmith completed his dissertation, "An Investigation of George Friedrich Händel's Orchestral Style," the first thematic catalogue of Handel's works, at Harvard. He published a critical edition of Handel's Messiah in 1947, incorporating all known variants of text and music. The Jacob M. Coopersmith Collection covers the period from 1709 to 1967, with the bulk of the materials dating from 1930 to 1967. The collection consists of books, scores, manuscripts and facsimiles, catalogues, libretti, and articles collected by Coopersmith during his career.
