Synopsis of Music in English Children's Drama of the Later Renaissance

This is the first book-length study to examine the Elizabethan and Jacobean children's drama from a musicological perspective. THe evidence presented here gives the cheldren's companies new historical significance. It shows that the children's companies were an integral and ultimately influential part of the London theatrical world. They originated important features of later drama, such as music before and between acts, and the exploitation of different timbres for specific effects.

Howard Mayer Brown

Austern's book will become the standard work on children's drama and an important souce for reference for years to come.
