The Music Department at King's College London is pleased to host the editorial offices of Eighteenth-Century Music, a journal published by Cambridge University Press. The editors are Cliff Eisen (King's College London) and W. Dean Sutcliffe (St Catharine's College, Cambridge); the reviews editor is Simon Keefe (Queen's University, Belfast). Contact details are given below.
The journal is intended as a forum for all 'long' eighteenth-century music research (from ca. 1670 to ca. 1830), thus attempting to overcome the divisions so characteristic not only of the historiography of this century but also the scholarly methodologies normally associated with it. To this end, the editors welcome not only traditional source, analytical, historical and performance practice studies, but also interdisciplinary contributions, tapping into the institutional strengths of many other areas of eighteenth-century research. In addition to standard journal-length articles and book reviews, Eighteenth-Century Music also includes a number of less usual features such as shorter articles (based on the model of the 'kleine Beiträge' in some German journals: short reports on newly-discovered sources or documents, succinct analytical observations or even kite-flying hypotheses), reviews of books, editions and recordings, and an extensive 'communications' section intended to facilitate better and more flexible scholarly exchange.
The editors would be delighted to receive submissions (four copies please) at the editorial address below, as well as offers to review books, editions, recordings and eighteenth-century conferences.
