The practice and context of a private Victorian brass band

Herbert, Trevor (1999). The practice and context of a private Victorian brass band. In: Zon, Bennett ed. Nineteenth-Century British Music Studies, Volume 1. Aldershot: Ashgate, pp. 105–118.

Abstract

This volume of essays derives from the inaugural biennial conference of Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain, which was held at the University of Hull in July 1997. The contributions cover a wide range of subjects and musicological approaches, from analyses of trends in public music-making during the period, to the reception of music by foreign composers in Britain. This book provides a broad survey of the nation's musical life and challenges the persistent assumption that Britain was das Land ohne Musik. The research it reveals will be of interest to both music and social historians.
