This volume surveys musical life in 16th-century Venice in the context of broader developments in society and institutions, through 18 essays on musical institutions like the San Marco chapel, the confraternities, the academies, and parish, monastic, and nunnery churches; music in the public and private sphere, including ceremonial life and salons and ridotti; musical actors like chapel masters, professional singers, instrumentalists and instrument makers, music printers and publishers, and music theorists; and genres, styles, and cross-cultural traditions like double-choir music, the frottola, instrumental music, polyphony, Jewish art music, and musical ties to Istria and Dalmatia. Contributors are music scholars from North America, Europe, and Israel. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
