Elizabethan and Early Jacobean Praises of Music
Expanding my research beyond the WBP and into Elizabethan musical and print cultures more generally, I am at work on an essay collection in collaboration with my co-editor Katherine Butler about the Elizabethan and Jacobean “praise of music” genre: writings defending music (and especially church music) from those who opposed it on moral and theological grounds. In addition to essays, this book will also include my new critical editions of a number of these works. We have begun confirming essay topics with contributors and are developing a proposal for publication.
