Notes and Editorial Reviews

Shakespeare's music. There can be no doubt that music played a considerable role in Shakespeare's plays, although very little of it has survived. Intended to highlight the qualities of a character, to intensify a dramatic situation or to create a certain mood, these songs were written by composers as varied a Byrd, Weelkes and Morley and are part of the very quintessence of Elizabethan music.
