1 Review
The Cambridge History of Seventeenth-Century Music provides a complete examination of the repertory, institutions, performers, composers, and social and cultural world which created one of the greatest moments in music history. The writers explore new aspects of composition and performance which took root during this time: the cosmopolitan nature of music making; emergence of markets for musical activity; and the development of new musical styles and gestures and their language and meaning. The volume also contains a separate chronology and dictionary-style entries on individuals, places and institutions.
