12, no. 1:
A Note from the Editor
This issue of the Journal
of Seventeenth-Century Music features three very different articles.
Michael R. Dodds provides an analysis of the contrapuntal theories of
Werckmeister, who is often remembered only for his tuning temperaments;
Brent Wissick provides an informed performers viewpoint on the cello
sonatas of Bononcini, richly illustrated with video and audio recordings;
and C. Jane Gosine presents a detailed look at the handwriting in the
autograph manuscripts of Charpentier, contributing to the on-going work
of establishing a chronology for this repertory. These articles are complemented
by reviews of books, a critical edition of music, and a facsimile edition
of a collection of sacred songs.
We encourage communications
from readers about issues that our articles and reviews treat. Such communications
are published in a subsequent issue of JSCM, with a note and link
appended to the original article. The present issue has a postscript by
Lois Rosow to volume 10, no. 1 (2004), devoted entirely to Lullys Persée,
and guest edited by Professor Rosow.
Proposals from authors for
articles are always welcome at JSCM (see the Guidelines
for Contributors). I call authors attention to the fact that we have
a Style Sheet, which can be downloaded from the Guidelines page. A new
page on our site, Support JSCM,
encourages financial support from readers who find JSCM useful.
We have no intention of charging any fee to read this journal, but its
production is not without considerable expense.
Since my last note, there
have been two changes in the team who make JSCM possible. We
warmly thank Tim Carter, retiring from the Board, for all he has done
for the Journal. Joining us is Georgia Cowart, the new President of the
Society for Seventeenth-Century Music, an ex officio member of
the Board. The full listing of the editorial team can be seen in the Masthead.
Finally, I wish to thank Paul Arroyo and his staff at the University of
Illinois Press for continued cooperative technical work in publishing
JSCM with the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music.
