(UK) Newly published from Ashgate Publishing Group: "The Music Trade in Georgian England"

Contributed by Admin on Sep 04, 2011

(Edited by Michael Kassler, Michael Kassler and Associates, Australia)
Published
: August 2011
ISBN:
978-0-7546-6065-1

“In contrast to today's music industry, whose principal products are recorded songs sold to customers round the world, the music trade in Georgian England was based upon London firms that published and sold printed music and manufactured and sold instruments on which this music could be played. The destruction of business records and other primary sources has hampered investigation of this trade, but recent research into legal proceedings, apprenticeship registers, surviving correspondence and other archived documentation has enabled aspects of its workings to be reconstructed.
