Description - Records of English Court Music by Andrew Ashbee
Pioneering work on the musical material from the archives of the English court was undertaken by Nagel (1894), Lafontaine (1909) and Stokes (in the Musical Antiquary 1903-1913). "Records of English Court Music" (a series of seven volumes covering the period 1485-1714) is an attempt to compile a systematic calendar of such references. It aims to revise these earlier studies where necessary, adding details which researchers omitted, clarifying the context of documents and substituting current call-marks for defunct references. Volume V is primarily concerned with the post-Restoration years already partially covered in volumes I and II. The material from the Exchequer and Declared Accounts of the Treasurer of the Chamber has been revised to include references to trumpeters and drummers. Other sections are devoted to material outside the Lord Chamberlain's papers: the Signet Office Docquet Books, Secret Service accounts and more from the Exchequer; the Corporation of Musick (controlled by the Court musicians) and to the range of music material from accounts of the Receivers General.
Samples from the comprehensive records of the Lord Steward's department (including those of the Cofferer of the Household) are also provided.
