English eighteenth-century music is comparatively neglected as an academic topic despite its increasing popularity with listeners, both on record and in the concert hall. Yet England in the eighteenth century was the scene of the liveliest and most various musical activity. The essays in this book, by leading English and American scholars, are devoted to the social and intellectual background, and to the composers who dominated the period, including Handel and Haydn.
