MusiXTeX MusiXTeX Library [ to Japanese page ] This is the library of MusiXTeX, a set of TeX mactos to typeset orchestral or polyphonic music. You can obtain some scores in MusiXTeX source files, PostScript graphic image and MIDI file. The files in this library are free to use personally, but if you change the source or use them commercially, you have to take care about the copyright rule. Score Library All the World's a Stage Here's the latest update for our annotated list of REED-related web resources. I've reduced the number of separate pages to 10 and added some new resources, chiefly in the expanded Local History section. The REED Anglo-Latin Wordbook (linked on in the Mediaeval and Early Modern Theatre page), has been expanded to include the collections from Cambridge through Inns of Court. And we have also added PDFs of the revised REED Handbook and the Palaeographic checking guidelines. The need for annotated lists, that is, meta-bibliographies of sites, has never seemed greater. In the course of this update, a search engine returned 9,910,000 'hits' for the phrase 'medieval English theatre' and 99, 400,000 hits for the phrase 'early music'!

England Through 1635 English music flourished under Henry VIII, owing in no small measure to his interest in it, and also under Edward VI and Mary, to reach, at the end of Elizabeth's reign, a level rarely approached thereafter. As the English grew in riches and power and acquired an increasing knowledge of the art products of the continent through the importation of foreign talent and through travel, they abandoned their temporary insularity in cultural matters and eagerly assimilated, though at a late date, the ideas and ideals of the Italian Renaissance. Tudor church music was remarkable, but it is the secular forms of English music--the madrigal, lute ayre, virginal music, and fancies for viols--that embody most richly the spirit and power of the English Renaissance. The same accumulation of intellectual and artistic force that produced Sidney, Shakespeare, Bacon, Donne, and Inigo Jones also produced Morley, Weelkes, Dowland, and Orlando Gibbons.
