about

Vaughan Williams forms a central thread in this discussion, and Stratford-upon-Avon serves as a geographic focal point for mediating conflicting visions of an English musical tradition. But the reach of this book is much wider, shedding new light on English Wagnerism, Purcell and the seventeenth-century masque, and the May festival, Mummers' play and pageant play, among others. This book not only illustrates the activities and ambitions of principal agents but also illuminates a particularly dynamic moment in the re-emergence of a distinctively English music-theatrical practice.
