Early Music is a stimulating and richly illustrated journal, and is unrivalled in its field. Founded in 1973, it remains the leading journal for anyone interested in early music and how it is being interpreted today. Contributions from scholars and performers of international standing explore every aspect of earlier musical repertories, present vital new evidence for our understanding of the music of the past, and tackle controversial issues of performance practice. Each beautifully-presented issue contains a wide range of thought-provoking articles on aspects of earlier musical repertoires, including perspectives from performance practice and from historical and contextual research. New discoveries of musical sources, instruments and documentation are regularly featured, and innovatory approaches to research and performance are explored, often in collections of themed articles.
