Prefatory Negotiations: Figuring the Author in Late Sixteenth- and Early Seventeenth-Century English Printed Music Books

While literary criticism has highlighted the 'appropriation' of print technology by writers such as Spenser and Jonson in acts of 'textual self-monumentalization' (Montrose, 1996), contemporaneous English composers such as Dowland, Byrd, Tallis and Morley also employed print as a means of authorising their works, promoting their fame and reputation and aggrandising their socio-cultural status as musicians. This paper will consider how such musicians fashioned their authorial identities within the prefatory materials of their printed music books.

The East Finchley Arts Festival begins this weekend with a concert on Saturday 4 October by Duo Dorado, violinist Hazel Brooks and harpsichordist David Pollock. They will play a selection of baroque music, beginning at 12.30pm, and a sandwich lunch will be available after the concert.
There’s full information about all the Festival events at – highlights include concerts by the Endellion String Quartet (5 October), a jazz evening with Viper’s Dream (8 October), Fauré’s Requiem and a Handel organ concerto played by Jennifer Bate (10 October), and a recital by the brilliant young cellist Gemma Rosefield with Michael Dussek (11 October).
There are concerts too by the Barnet Youth Music Centre on 12 October, and the Finchley Children’s Music Group on 19 October.
There’s a very special concert on Thursday 9 October, when the renowned French viol player and cellist Christophe Coin brings his Lupo Consort to the Festival. The concert will be given using no less than three original Jaye viols from the 17th century, some of which come from the Kessler Collection. For further information about the viols and about the newly-made viol being raffled to raise money for the Collection, see Raffle tickets will be available at the concert.
I hope to see you at some of the Festival concerts.
