Masque and Opera in England, 1656–1688 presents a comprehensive study of the development of court masque and through-composed opera in England from the mid-1650s to the Revolution of 1688–89. In seeking to address the problem of generic categorization within a highly fragmentary corpus for which a limited amount of documentation survives, Walkling argues that our understanding of the distinctions between masque and opera must be premised upon a thorough knowledge of theatrical context and performance circumstances. Using extensive archival and literary evidence, detailed textual readings, rigorous tabular analysis, and meticulous collation of bibliographical and musical sources, this interdisciplinary study offers a host of new insights into a body of work that has long been of interest to musicologists, theatre historians, literary scholars and historians of Restoration court and political culture, but which has hitherto been imperfectly understood. A companion volume will explore the phenomenon of "dramatick opera" and its precursors on London’s public stages between the early 1660s and the first decade of the eighteenth century.

Recomposing the Past is a book concerned with the complex but important ways in which we engage with the past in modern times. Contributors examine how media on stage and screen uses music, and in particular early music, to evoke and recompose a distant past. Culture, popular and otherwise, is awash with a stylise - sometimes contradictory - musical history. And yet for all its complexities, these representations of the past through music are integral to how our contemporary and collective imaginations understand history. More importantly, they offer a valuable insight into how we understand our musical present. Such representative strategies, the book argues, cross generic boundaries, and as such it brings together a range of multimedia discussion on the subjects of film (Lord of the Rings, Dangerous Liasions), television (Game of Thrones, The Borgias), videogame (Dragon Warrior, Gauntlet), and opera (Written on Skin, Taverner, English ‘dramatick opera’). This collection constitutes a significant, and interdisciplinary, contribution to a growing literature which is unpacking our ongoing creative dialogue with the past. Divided into three complementary sections, grouped not by genre or media but by theme, it considers: ‘Authenticity, Appropriateness, and Recomposing the Past’, ‘Music, Space, and Place: Geography as History’, and ‘Presentness and the Past: Dialogues between Old and New’. Like the musical collage that is our shared multimedia historical soundscape, it is hoped that this collection is, in its eclecticism, more than the sum of its parts.

Sie sind die Familie Kings, die Könige von Loosewood Island. Dieser ungestümen Insel zwischen Nova Scotia und Maine. Karg ist es hier, ursprünglich, rau. Doch die Kings sind mit dem Reichtum des Meeres gesegnet und widmen sich hier seit nunmehr dreihundert Jahren dem Hummerfang. Als Brumfitt Kings, der erste der Familie auf die Insel kam, konnte er, so heißt es, das letzte Stück zu Fuß zurücklegen. Denn es gab hier so viele Hummer, sie bildeten mit ihren Panzern eine Brücke und bahnten ihm einen Weg durch das Wasser. Heute will sich Cordelia Kings auf Loosewood Island und als Hummerfischerin behaupten. Sie will beweisen, dass sie die Königin der Insel sein kann: sich selbst, ihrem Vater – und ihrem verheirateten Steuermann. Doch das erweist sich als schwieriger als gedacht, denn seit jeher lastet ein Fluch auf den Kings – und der fordert Opfer, und beeinflusst das Leben der Familie nicht minder als das unergründliche, alles verschlingende Meer ...

This volume brings together a collection of papers on the general theoretical and methodological problems in the historiography of semiotics. It is not a history in the conventional sense, even though the main periods and figures in the development of semiotics are given due prominence. Nevertheless, it should offer the reader stimulation and food for thought in the critical approach to even the least questioned facts of semiotic history and the emphasis given to hitherto neglected problems and persons.
