The Well-Tun’d Word: Musical Interpretations of English Poetry, 1597-1651 The Well-Tun’d Word Musical Interpretations of English Poetry, 1597-1651 Elise Bickford Jorgens None
In The Well-Tun’d Word Elisa Bickford Jorgens studies changing msucial conventions in English song in relation to new patterns in poetic taste from the late Elizabethan era through the Jacobean and Caroline years, basing her work on the premise that any musical setting of a poem is an interpretation of the poem itself. Jorgen’s opening chapters describe and illustrate elements of the craft of poetry and the musical conventions that can represent them. Her presentation is both clear and thorough, and will be especially helpful for students and scholars of English literature who are not necessarily musicians. She then discusses four major categories of song: Measured Music, Dance Songs and Tuneful Airs, English Monody, and Pathetic Airs, and shows how each group changed during the first half of the seventeenth century.
