14, no. 1:
A Note from the Editor
This issue of the Journal
of Seventeenth-Century Music presents three essays that all involve Italian
music in only partially Italian contexts. Alexander Fisher elucidates the role
of the Munich anthologist Victorinus in promulgating the Italian sacred
concerto in southern Germany and Austria; Bruno Forments study of Arcadian
opera has forays as far north as Stockholm; and Michele Cabrinis review deals
with a Venetian composer rudely transplanted to Paris.
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.
Proposals from authors for articles are always welcome at JSCM (see the
Guidelines for Contributors). I call authors
attention to the fact that we publish a Style
Sheet, which can be downloaded from the Guidelines page. Another 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.
Relatively new to the JSCM website is the series we have named JSCM
Instrumenta. The series consists of individual collections of data to provide
resources that aid in the study and performance of seventeenth-century music.
Unlike articles in JSCM,
instrumenta are revised by the author when new information is discovered. A
number of works have been accepted for the series and are in varying states of
development; new proposals are certainly invited.
