Description - Records of English Court Music by Andrew Ashbee

This ninth volume provides a comprehensive index to the preceding eight volumes. The specialist series presents a new calendar of the material from the Lord Chamberlain's papers from 1485 to 1714. It provides details from the records relating to music, musicians and instruments. Details such as the prices paid for instruments; who was employed to look after them; the fees paid to players; what they had to wear; how much the seamstress charged for liveries; who was hired and fired and why, all work to paint a fascinating picture of the musical life of the court.
