“Half of Humanity Has Something to Say, Also”
This volume, the second to be published in a four-volume series, examines compositions by eight composers from the twelfth to nineteenth centuries. The introductory chapter outlines the organization of the volume and the goals of the project—to celebrate outstanding music composed by women by according it the same scholarly attention devoted to music by men; to create a critical mass of scholarship that will stimulate new analytical research and bring it into the mainstream of music theoretical discourse; and to bring to readers’ attention “new” repertoire that is rewarding to performer, listener, and scholar. Distinctions are noted between the composers, particularly in terms of the sociohistorical contexts in which they created their music. Questions of genre and scale are also discussed.
