The Power of Pastiche

Musical Miscellany and the Cultural Identity in Early Eighteenth-Century England

Alison DeSimone

Clemson University Press in association with Liverpool University Press

Studies in British Musical Cultures

  • Offers a new approach to understanding the cultural context of music in early eighteenth-century London
  • Contributes to filling in the musical-historical gap between the death of Henry Purcell and the arrival of George Frideric Handel in England
  • Focuses on the consumption of music by audiences, rather than just the composition or performance of that music
  • Its interdisciplinary focus contextualizes musical miscellany within a larger framework of miscellany culture in early eighteenth-century England
