Italian arias in score, early 18th cent.
Biographical / Historical
Michele Fini (1708-1752) was a composer. The other name is probably that of Ridolfo Campeggi (1565-1624), dramatist, poet and librettist, who would have provided the words rather than the music.

This item is part of the Music School collection of printed and manuscript music, which was originally bequeathed to the University of Oxford by William Heather (c 1563-1627), and gradually added to until the end of the 18th century. The present manuscript was probably once owned by James Sherard.
Immediate Source of Acquisition
The collection was transferred to the Bodleian in 1885.
