Special Issue: Recreational Music of Byrd and Weelkes

Katherine Butler and I co-edited a special 'cluster' of Early Music on the recreational music of Byrd and Weelkes for their 2023 quatercentenary. The whole shebang is finally out in preview. Special thanks to Samatha Arten, Joseph Ortiz, & Linda Phyllis Austern for their contributions. Open access in the UK only (minus the editorial, which I think can be viewed anywhere).

Arten, ‘A knowledge easely taught, and quickly learned’: learning to sing in Byrd’s England: 

Austern, ‘Well sorted and ordered’: sociable music-making and gentlemen’s recreation in the era of Byrd and Weelkes:

Bank, William Byrd’s Come, woeful Orpheus in context: motion as visual and musical affect:

Butler, Sounding passions and therapeutic performance in Thomas Weelkes’s songs:

Ortiz, Nec doctum satis: humanist translation and English recreational song:
