French and Italian Opera in England in the Seventeenth Century

To rewrite the early history of opera in the England of the seventeenth century. Grantee proposes to organize the study of this music in England around a narrative history of the persons, music, institutions and events involved, also undertaking a stylistic study of the extant foreign music in Britain and of the English music it may have influenced, as well as a socio-historical examination of the forces for and against the importation of foreign opera in England. Preliminary investigation by the grantee suggested that the influence of French and Italian opera was a more significant part of English musical life than had hitherto been believed.
