Jones, David Wyn ORCID:, ed. 2000. Music in Eighteenth-Century Britain. Aldershot: Ashgate.

Full text not available from this repository.


This collection of essays looks at various aspects of musical life in 18th-century Britain. The significant roles played by institutions such as the Freemasons and foreign embassy chapels in promoting music making and introducing foreign styles to English music are examined, as well as the influence exerted by individuals, both foreign and British. The book covers the spectrum of British music, both sacred and secular, and both cosmopolitan and provincial. In doing so it helps to redress the picture of 18th-century British music which has previously portrayed Handel and London as its primary constituents.
