Music in North-East England, 1500-1800

Edited by Stephanie Carter, Kirsten Gibson and Roz Southey

  • Description
  • Contents
This collection situates the North-East within a developing nationwide account of British musical culture.
Music in North-East England provides a wide-ranging exploration of musical life in the North-East of England during the early modern period. It contributes to a growing number of studies concerned with developing a nationwide account of British musical culture. By defining the North-East in its widest sense, the collection illuminates localised differences, distinct musical cultures in urban centres and rural locations, as well as region-wide networks, and situates regional musical life in broader national and international contexts. Music in North-East England affords new insights into aspects of musical life that have been the focus of previous studies of British musical life - such as public concerts - but also draws attention to aspects that have attracted less scholarly attention in histories of early modern British musical culture: the musical activities and tastes of non-elite consumers; interactions between art music and cheap print and popular song; music education beyond London and its satellite environs; the recovery of northern urban soundscapes; and the careers of professional musicians who have not previously been the focus of major published musicological studies.

STEPHANIE CARTER is a music historian and archivist.
KIRSTEN GIBSON is Senior Lecturer and Head of Music at Newcastle University.
ROZ SOUTHEY is a music historian and novelist.
