The Oxford History of English Music, Volume 2 takes the story of English Music from c.1715 to the present day. Apart from discussing the music of the principal composers, it focuses to a certain extent on the work of lesser musicians, and includes developments in light and popular music as well as in serious genres. After seven chapters in which the main events are considered chronologically, a further chapter deals specifically with folk music and popular music of all periods, and a final chapter covers social issues not otherwise handled in detail. There are over a hundred musical examples, illustrating all chapters except the last, and all based on original sources.

Volumes 1 and 2 together offer a major survey of English musical history by a single author. British music outside England is not considered except where it is of direct relevance to the history of music in England; it thus differs in emphasis from most other works of the kind since Ernest Walker's History of Music in England, last revised in 1952 by Sir Jack Westrup (OUP).

Review:

it would be hard to imagine a musical historian better informed or more elegantly accessible than Caldwell (Robert Ponsonby, BBC Music Magazine)

Caldwell's breadth of vision and his comprehensive view of the sweep of history is one of the cardinal virtues of this book. (Plainsong and Medieval Music)

Caldwell's mastery of minute detail, even at its most intransigent, is convincing and the results highly readable. (Plainsong and Medieval Music)

About the Author:

Co-editor: Plainsong and Medieval Music (1992-6) General Editor: Musica da Camera; Corpus of Early Keyboard Music; Early English Church Music. Series Editor: Outstanding Theses on Music from British Universities (Garland Publishing).
