This interdisciplinary collection examines musical culture in urban centres in Renaissance Europe and the New World. Although musicologists have indeed already investigated such topics, lack of familiarity with (urban) historical methodologies has often resulted in failure to explore fully the ways in which the urban environment had an impact on musical activity of all kinds; neither is this question adequately addressed by urban historians. This book thus aims to integrate musicological and urban-historical approaches. To urban historians it shows the range of work undertaken by music historians; to musicologists it presents some different approaches, questions and perspectives which suggest new lines of enquiry for future investigations. Not only does this book contribute to musicology, but it also adds considerably to urban history scholarship.
