O let us howle some heavy note : music for witches, the melancholic, and the mad on the seventeenth-century English stage
"This book focuses on the various ways that theatrical music represented disorderly subjects - those who presented either a direct of metaphorical threat to the health of the English kingdom in seventeenth-century England. Using theater music to examine narratives of social history, she demonstrates how music reinscribed and often resisted conservative, political, religious, gender, and social ideologies."--Jacket
