      Abstract: For an instrument that has been widely played throughout Europe (and beyond) for the past five centuries, the guitar has retained a remarkably low profile in the written history of music. Until recently, otherwise exhaustive discussions of the Baroque, Classical or Romantic periods would seldom even mention the instrument or discuss its repertory, and its leading composers were largely ignored by the compilers of music dictionaries; few conservatoires included the guitar on their syllabuses, and when a critic did deign to attend a guitar recital, the subsequent review invariably contained a lament to the instrument’s manifest unsuitability for the concert hall. However, for much of this time, the instrument was regularly encountered at all levels of society—from the roughest taverns and barber shops to the most genteel salons and parlours, from the back streets of Madrid and Naples to aristocratic houses and royal courts—and a plausible claim could be made that the guitar (in its myriad forms) has been consistently the most widely played musical instrument in the Western world during the past half-millennium. Yet somehow its music, performers, composers, luthiers and even its very existence have largely flown beneath the radar of respectable musicology.

  • Being a guitarist in late Georgian England
    • Authors: Page C.
      Pages: 3 - 16
      Abstract: AbstractLate Georgian England has long been a poor relation to other countries in modern histories of the guitar. Yet in England, as elsewhere, the guitar enjoyed a considerable vogue in the early 19th century that only began to wane in the 1840s. In London, as in Paris or Vienna, the guitar was widely agreed to be a very serviceable instrument for accompanying the voice, and a substantial number of method books and songs for the instrument were issued. In addition to these primary materials of the guitar vogue there is a wealth of ancillary evidence in the form of anecdotes, caricatures, reviews and newspaper advertisements. This material is difficult to gather—or indeed to use—in a systematic manner. This article organizes the results of a protracted search in relation to two fundamental questions: what was it like to play the guitar in early Georgian England, and who was doing the playing'

  • Rediscovering the Regency lute: a checklist of musical sources and extant
    • Authors: Takeuchi T.
      Pages: 17 - 34
      Abstract: Abstract‘Awakening up, he took her hollow lute,— / Tumultuous,—and, in chords that tenderest be, / He played an ancient ditty, long since mute …’. These lines from The Eve of St Agnes, by John Keats, provide a reminder that the Romantic poets were fascinated by the lute. As if in response, around 1800 an instrument called ‘lute’ or ‘modern lute’ suddenly became fashionable. Most examples had an egg-shaped body, with ten single strings, and were built in London by craftsmen such as Buchinger, Barry and Harley. At the same time, older lutes from the 16th and 17th centuries were converted into ‘modern lutes’. This article contributes to a rediscovery of these forgotten lutes and their music in the Regency period. It presents the first census of the nine extant instruments, surveys the original musical sources, and considers matters of playing technique and contemporary instruction books. A surprisingly rich repertory is revealed, for these lutes played arrangements of contemporary popular tunes and dances, but there were also newly composed sonatas, rondos and lute songs.

  • ‘Extra fine Guitars after the newest Fashion’: guitar- and
           cittern-making in the northern Netherlands, 1750–1800
    • Authors: van Amersfoort J.
      Pages: 35 - 53
      Abstract: AbstractVery little research has been undertaken into guitar-making and playing in the Netherlands. Neither the 17th century nor the 18th has received much attention, though we know that the playing of guitars and similar instruments was an integral part of cosmopolitan cultural life. This article introduces a number of luthiers and their guitars—wire-strung and gut-strung—made in the Netherlands between c.1750 and 1800, a period when concert life began to flourish. In Amsterdam, Johann Swarts, Gosewijn Spijker and Benoit Joseph Boussu were active, while Johannes Cuijpers had his workshop in The Hague. Brief biographies of these makers are given, together with inventories of known instruments. The most remarkable find is undoubtedly the recently rediscovered large five-course guitar made by Gosewijn Spijker. Finally, there is a discussion of who may have bought these guitars—a Greek merchant’s son, a French actress—and how the instruments would have been used.

      Abstract: AbstractWhen researching my 1989 book (with James Tyler) The early mandolin, I found scant evidence of the mandolin’s popularity in 18th-century Britain, but further research over almost 30 years now enables me substantially to revise that picture. This article demonstrates that, from 1750 onwards, the instrument was frequently played in London and Bath (where international virtuosos such as Gervasio, Leoné, Riggieri, Merchi and Nonnini regularly performed and taught), in opera houses, concert halls and theatrical productions, but also in circuses and sideshows. Mandolins were sold and played in many provincial cities, and were especially popular in Edinburgh, where concert master Girolamo Stabilini frequently performed his ‘Favourite Variations on the Mandolino’ in St Cecilia’s Hall. I have recently located a copy of this (previously unknown) music. Also discussed are the mandolin’s many appearances in late 18th-century epistolary novels, where it often has strong erotic connotations, and in portraits of the female aristocracy.

  • The impact of François Chanot’s experimental violins on the development
           of the earliest guitar with an arched soundboard by Francesco Molino in
           the 1820s
    • Authors: Poulopoulos P.
      Pages: 67 - 86
      Abstract: AbstractAround 1823 the guitarist Francesco Molino (1768–1847) invented a guitar with an arched soundboard, described and depicted in one of his methods published in Paris, and evidenced by a number of surviving examples. This innovative model of guitar was evidently influenced by experimental instruments of the violin family that appeared during the early 19th century, particularly the guitar-shaped violins introduced in 1817 by François Chanot (1788–1825). However, until now no connection between Molino and Chanot could be firmly established and none of the known surviving examples could be directly attributed to Molino. This article presents and analyses the distinctive features of Molino’s guitar and examines its connection to Chanot’s patent guitar-violins as well as to similar hybrid instruments combining features of both plucked and bowed instruments that were developed around the same time, such as the arpeggione and the streichzither. Furthermore, the article provides new information on the professional links between Molino and Chanot through the recent discovery of a previously unnoticed instrument, and also attempts to illuminate why Molino’s pioneering guitar model did not become established in guitar circles.

  • Long or short' The appoggiatura in the early 19th-century guitar
           tradition, with special reference to the music of Fernando Sor
    • Authors: Stenstadvold E.
      Pages: 87 - 101
      Abstract: AbstractThe interpretation of appoggiaturas or grace-notes in Classical and early Romantic music is much discussed and contested. This article concerns the appoggiatura in the music of Fernando Sor (1778–1839), a guitarist whose career unfolded in several countries, above all in France, where almost all his known guitar music was published. Although none of this music survives in autograph manuscripts, there are ample autographs of Sor’s compositions for voice, piano or orchestra to examine his musical handwriting in general and the notation of appoggiaturas specifically. Notwithstanding inaccuracies and inconsistencies, the notation indicates that the written length of the appoggiatura is often a useful pointer to its approximate duration in performance. It also shows that Sor seems to have envisaged long appoggiaturas in far more situations than commonly considered today. This practice is supported by descriptions in a great number of method books, both for the guitar and other instruments, published in France during the early decades of the 19th century.

  • From dance to poem: Jean-Féry Rebel, Françoise Prévost and the
           character of dance in early 18th-century France
    • Authors: Burgess G.
      Pages: 103 - 122
      Abstract: AbstractJean-Féry Rebel’s Caractères de la Danse (c.1715) has played a prominent role in the revival of French Baroque dance; a contemporaneous poetic parody supplements the work’s potential value as a guide to understanding 18th-century choreography. Presenting new evidence on the identity of the poet and the parody’s purpose, this article proposes that, rather describing the original choreography, the poem tells another story: that of the character of Françoise Prévost, the dancer who premiered the work. This in turn has important implications for the incorporation of pantomime in Baroque choreography.

      Pages: 123 - 130
      Abstract: AbstractThis article presents documents hitherto unknown to Handel and opera scholarship from the archive at Alnwick Castle, Northumberland. The correspondence between the Earl and Countess of Herford and their son, Lord Beauchamp, in the years 1742–4 includes unrecorded reports of Handel’s planning a 1743–4 opera season, and casts light on the opera attendance and observations of Lord Hertford and others in the London opera-going community.

  • England’s most Christian king: Henry VIII’s 1513 campaigns and a lost
           votive antiphon by William Cornysh
    • Authors: Gibbs D.
      Pages: 131 - 148
      Abstract: AbstractThe votive antiphon to the Trinity, Potencia patris, survives as a single voice part in the orphan partbook London, British Library, Add. Ms. 34191. Its unusual text shows that it was probably written during Henry VIII’s 1513 invasion of France, most likely to celebrate the capture of Tournai in September of that year. Based on stylistic and biographical information it is also possible to attribute the antiphon to William Cornysh ‘Junior’, Henry’s informator choristarum, who accompanied him on campaign in 1513. Cornysh is known to have written an antiphon with the text Altissimi potencia, which survives only as an entry in the index fragment Oxford, Merton College Library (pr. bk.) 62.f.8, and it is likely that this lost work can be identified with Potencia patris. This new identification has broad implications for our understanding both of Henry VIII’s self-fashioning during his invasion of France, and of early Tudor musical style.

  • The origin of fixed-scale solmization in The Whole Booke of Psalmes
    • Authors: Arten S.
      Pages: 149 - 165
      Abstract: AbstractWilliam Bathe’s Briefe Introduction to the Skill of Song (c.1596) and Thomas Morley’s Plaine and Easie Introduction to Practicall Musicke (1597) describe a solmization system that is fixed and static, replacing the medieval hexachordal system that went back to Guido d’Arezzo. This approach became standard in the 17th century. My research demonstrates that the English shift from traditional hexachords to fixed scales was initiated a generation earlier in The Whole Booke of Psalmes. First printed in 1562, many editions of this psalter, beginning in 1569, featured a music typeface that contained solmization syllables, along with a new preface that explained their use. Thus the earliest documentation of fixed-scale solmization comes from Protestant religious reformers and the English Reformation’s hymnal. I explain how The Whole Booke of Psalmes systematized the assignment of solmization syllables to absolute pitches, and I compare this system with continental hexachord theory, Bathe’s and Morley’s treatises, and four earlier Genevan music books dated 1550–62 which also printed solmization syllables. Finally, I suggest that fixed-scale solmization was a uniquely English Protestant innovation.

  • Refreshing Bach
    • Authors: Grigsby N.
      Pages: 186 - 188
      Abstract: Organists choosing to set themselves the Herculean challenge of rendering afresh Bach’s greatest œuvre for the instrument might, one would imagine, consider in the foothills of their ascent the maxim of Pablo Casals: ‘The most perfect technique is that which is not noticed at all’. It is a given that recordings of Bach’s only bespoke collection of music intended for the organ alone will always prove value for money. Its 27 individual compositions framing the third part of Bach’s ‘Keyboard Exercise’ present a summation of the stylistic traits of the era, both old and new, infused with Italian, German and French accents. However, the challenge for the interpreter is to be able to present this expansive musical journey from a commanding viewpoint whereby a perfect technique is such that it goes unnoticed, whilst allowing the richly varied musical topography of the music to speak for itself, ideally nuance-free.

  • Love and death in early modern Italy
    • Authors: Harris S.
      Pages: 188 - 191
      Abstract: A widely circulated fable of the late Renaissance draws parallels between Cupid and Death. In the story, both shoot their victims using arrows, so it is simplicity itself for them to switch places. After spending a night at the same inn, the two unwittingly exchange quivers, causing old men to fall in love and young ones to die. This is telling; during the early modern period, lovesickness, or love melancholy, was considered a genuine illness—one that could burn up the heart and soul, not to mention the liver and entrails. Though the recordings under review here present a wide range of musical responses to secular and sacred love from Italy, c.1500–1700, they share something in common: all but one of the discs warn of the dangers of desire.

  • Vocal polyphony from and around Lassus
    • Authors: Dietlinger B.
      Pages: 191 - 194
      Abstract: This selection of CDs brings together secular and sacred vocal polyphony from the 16th century, both a cappella and accompanied. The discs are reviewed in chronological order, starting with motets associated with a Ferrarese convent and ending with music found in the library of the Latin School in Freiberg, Saxony. The main body of this newly released repertory consists of sacred and secular music by the pan-European composer Orlande de Lassus, who worked as a composer in Italy, the Low Countries and the German Lands. Lassus is also a historical connecting figure between Italian convent music and Saxon music of Freiberg Cathedral.

  • Two hundred years of English instrumental music
    • Authors: Oddie J.
      Pages: 194 - 197
      Abstract: The eight discs reviewed here present a varied portrait of instrumental music in England from the 16th century of William Byrd to the 18th century of J. C. Bach. Few figures are more central to the history of English music than Byrd, whose keyboard music is the sole subject of two of these discs and occupies a central place in a third. All three are excellent. Colin Tilney’s Contrapuntal Byrd (Music & Arts cd-1288, issued 2016, 62′) ranges over most of the major genres of Byrd’s keyboard music, including three pavans, two fantasias, one ground and four variation works. Tilney plays a single-strung Italian harpsichord by Colin Booth, whose variety of timbres—sweet in the treble, more pungent and nasal in the tenor and bass—help to clarify Byrd’s counterpoint. Tilney’s reflective, contemplative approach to the music of the ‘virginalists’ is well known from his earlier recordings. Tempos are unhurried and flexible, allowing plenty of room to breathe: the liner notes connect Byrd’s keyboard music with his vocal works, stating that ‘every moving line in one of his fantasies or pavans is a wordless voice, having different registers and needing breath’ (p.5). This approach is most beautiful in the three pavans (the seventh and eighth from My Lady Nevell’s Book, as well as Byrd’s Lachrymae setting). The clarity of the Lachrymae setting is especially fine, permitting us to hear just how Byrd has clothed Dowland’s original in expressive counterpoint. Other highlights are the Fantasia in D minor and the Maiden’s Song. No piece is less than beautiful, although in some later sections of the Quadran Pavan and the Fantasia in A minor I wished for a little more rhythmic impetus. This is a minor criticism of what is certainly the most lyrical recording of the present batch; I look forward to returning to its thoughtful readings in the future.

  • Les goûts-réunis in the French Galant
    • Authors: McKean J.
      Pages: 197 - 200
      Abstract: Like pâté de foie gras, escargots or an especially fragrant Époisses cheese, French Baroque music is, for many, a love-it-or-hate-it phenomenon. Regardless of your personal preferences in these regards, all will agree that the distinctive ‘taste’ of both French music and cuisine is anything but bland. The music of the French High Baroque, brought to its apex in the late 17th century at the court of Louis XIV by Jean-Baptiste Lully and others, has a particularly indelible sense of stylistic identity, with its notes inégales, heavily affected ornamentation, affinity for dance rhythms, and rich harmonies—not to mention a certain je ne sais quoi that falls under the nebulous umbrella of ‘good taste’, or le bon goût. Even so, French musicians and the musical public were not impervious to the influence of Italian music that took Europe by storm during the first half of the 18th century. This influence was acknowledged—indeed, celebrated—by François Couperin in his collection of ‘Nouveaux Concerts’ published in 1724 and entitled Les Goûts-réünis, wherein the composer sought to ‘reunite the tastes’ of the French and Italian styles. German composers—notably Telemann—also cultivated such a ‘mixed taste’ (vermischter Geschmack), and also impacted the development of French style. The nine recordings considered in this review feature music by lesser-known composers that, to an extent, reflects such an amalgamation of styles, which is itself a defining characteristic of the French Galant.

    • Authors: Carpentier R.
      Pages: 201 - 202
      Abstract: The dramatic Salzburg landscape provided a fitting backdrop for the conference ‘Gaspar van Weerbeke: works and contexts’, held on 29 June to 1 July 2017. Twenty papers presented across three days studied the biography, sources and style of a composer whose place among the ‘greats’ of the late 15th century is clear, and yet whose music is still relatively little performed or studied. With about 30 attendees and no concurrent sessions, the conference enjoyed lively and collegial discussion. A vocal ensemble of four provided sung musical examples throughout the sessions, and the same ensemble offered a programme of Weerbeke’s music on the first evening.
