Noyses, Sounds, and Sweet Aires
This catalog explores the unique soundscapes of early modern England, through streets, into taverns and theaters, to court masques, cathedral services, and individual homes. It tells the story of the noises echoing through the city; the sounds of worlds in collision in and age of political and religious turmoil; and the sweet airs of amateurs and professionals. Includes music and manuscripts in the Folger collections.
