The Music Treatises of Thomas Ravenscroft synopsis
ThomasRavenscroft is known as a tour guide because of his three published collections: Pammelia and Deuteromelia (both 1609) and Melismata (1611), as well as his balance with the complete Psalmes (1621) and his original sanctuary. Ravenscroft, a landscape in addition to an author and editor, wrote two treatises on musictheory: The Well-Known Discourse (1614) and The A Study of Practicall Musicke (c.1607), which is still in manuscript.
This is the first book that combines theoretical work by this important Jacobi musician and offers critical studies and transcription of these letters. In addition, BriefeDiscourse offers a selection of music by Ravenscroft, John Bennet, and Ravenscroft's guide, Edward Pearce, illustrating some of the concepts in the message.
Daven's critical discussion will help explain Ravenscroft's complex view of focusing, in particular.
