The Lute in the Dutch Golden Age: Musical Culture in the Netherlands 1580-1670

 

 

(…This book wishes to present, for the first time, a study of the position of the lute in what is called the Golden Age in the netherlands. All aspects of the instrument will be discussed: celebrated and unknown lutenists, professional musicians and talented (or less talented) amateurs, lute music in print and in manuscript, lute builders and the trade in lutes. We will also look at the role of the instrument in literature and art, thus offering a contribution to the cultural history of the Dutch Republic. The book will throw more light on the musical life of the Golden Age, an aspect of that culture which has, until now, been rather underexposed in research…)
