Early Music History is devoted to the study of music from the early Middle Ages to the end of the seventeenth century. It demands the highest standards of scholarship from its contributors, all of whom are leading academics in their fields. It gives preference to studies pursuing interdisciplinary approaches and to those developing vel methodological ideas. The scope is exceptionally broad and includes manuscript studies, textual criticism, icography, studies of the relationship between words and music and the relationship between music and society. Articles in volume nineteen include: Mapping the soundscape: church music in English towns 1450-1550; Ritual and ceremony in the Spanish royal chapel c1559-1561; Royal image-making and textual interplay in Gilbert Banaster's O Maria et Elizabeth.
