Friedrich Chrysander
Catalogue of published works of Handel 1889 (last page of Cantate con strumenti di G.F. Händel (Libro Secondo))

Karl Franz Friedrich Chrysander was a German music historian and critic, whose edition of the works of George Frideric Handel and authoritative writings on many other composers established him as a pioneer of 19th-century musicology.

Between 1858 and 1902, the Händel-Gesellschaft or "German Handel Society" edition of Handel's collected works was published, and this was almost entirely the work of Chrysander;[1]

Publications[edit]

Chrysander made a number of publications under the Händelgesellschaft name (see Händegesellschaft – volumes with Chrysander as publisher).
