    schema:description ""Joining archival research with telling analysis of significant examples of music, art, and drama, Kelley Harness challenges the prevailing view that Florence saw a political and artistic decline during this period. She argues that the female domination of these years brought forth artistic patronage that was both continuous and well-conceived. And the interdisciplinary breadth of evidence she uses to support her argument makes Echoes of Women's Voices a valuable contribution to women's studies, musicology, and the history of arts patronage."--Jacket."@en ;
