Bibliografia

  • Loewenberg: col. 183 (Our fifth Opera was the Olimpiade, in which they retained most of Pergolesi's Songs & yet 'tis gone already, as if it had been a poor thing of Galuppi's. Two nights did I enjoy it all alone, snugg in a Nook in the Gallery, but found no one in those regions had ever heard of Pergolesi, nay, I heard several affirm it was a Composition of Pescetti's: now there is a 6th sprung up by the name of Cefalo & Procri (Thomas Gray's letter to lohn Chute, 24 May, 1742))
