Printed Musical Propaganda in Early Modern England

Joseph Arthur Mann

Clemson University Press in association with Liverpool University Press

Studies in British Musical Cultures

  • The book brings to light many musical sources that have yet to be mentioned or discussed in depth in the scholarly literature
  • The book reveals the hidden political functions of musical works that are well known, such as those by Henry Lawes, John Dryden, William D'Avenant, and others
  • The book is the first extensive study of printed musical propaganda and musical propaganda campaigns during the English civil wars and the first to study musical propaganda in all its forms across the second half of the seventeenth century in England
