Public Research Seminar: William Hunt and Bobbie Jane Gardener
Several English writers and poets in the period around 1600 refer to a closeness between the rhetorics of music and literature, some even identifying rhetorical figures which are common to both. In Germany, a major branch of music theory develops the idea, inspired by Luther and blossoming in the later 17th and 18th centuries, yet English composers and musicians are relatively silent on the subject. What might it all mean for performance of the great consort anthem repertoire today?
