Product Overview

In the 17th century, harmonious sounds were thought to represent the well-orderedbody of the obedient subject, and, by extension, the well-ordered state; conversely, discordant,unpleasant music represented both those who caused disorder (murderers, drunkards, witches,traitors) and those who suffered from bodily disorders (melancholics, madmen, and madwomen). Whilethese theoretical correspondences seem straightforward, in theatrical practice the musicalportrayals of disorderly characters were multivalent and often ambiguous.

O Let UsHowle Some Heavy Note focuses on the various ways that theatrical music represented disorderlysubjects?those who presented either a direct or metaphorical threat to the health of theEnglish kingdom in 17th-century England. Using theater music to examine narratives of socialhistory, Winkler demonstrates how music reinscribed and often resisted conservative, political,religious, gender, and social ideologies.
