Call for article submissions: Early Music Performer, the journal of the National Early Music Association (UK)

The bi-annual journal Early Music Performer is a valued publication in the field of performance practice research edited by Dr Andrew Woolley. With contributions by leading performers and scholars, reports, news items, and reviews, it appeals to a broad spectrum of early music lovers, students, musicians and academics with interests in the performance practice of any period and early music.

In the latest issue (no. 28) are articles by:

  • Michael Talbot on newly-discovered violin sonatas by Vivaldi
  • Anthony Rowland-Jones on the recorder in Western Europe before Lully
Articles are currently sought for future issues of the journal. Up to three articles appear in each issue, usually of between 4000 and 6000 words in length, while shorter or longer submissions can be considered. The journal also runs a series of reports on recent conferences and on electronic resources relevant to performance practice research. Proposals for contributions to this series are welcome. The deadlines for the Spring and Autumn issues are 1st March and 1st September respectively. A Style Guide for the journal can be obtained from the editor.
