Music in Eighteenth Century Norwich & Norfolk
Until well into the eighteenth century Norwich remained one of the largest cities outside London. Economically and socially it was a place of some complexity; the manufacturing and commercial centre of a regional cloth industry, a major market for agricultural produce, a cathedral city and seat of assizes, a fully competent unit able to provide a wide range of goods and services, and inevitably a cultural focus.
The development of music in Norwich and Norfolk is seen against this background of cultural transformation in the county town. At the same time is should be regarded as a historical process in which modern forms and institutions of music-making took shape and supplanted older traditions. Trevor Fawcett's book expands on these themes.
