Early Music is a stimulating and richly illustrated journal that is unrivalled in its field. Founded in 1973, it remains the 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 repertoires, present vital new evidence for our understanding of the music of the past, and tackle controversial issues of performance practice. Each issue contains a wide range of thought-provoking articles on performance practice. 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.
