Giuseppe Gerbino. 2009. Music and the Myth of Arcadia in Renaissance Italy. New Perspectives in Music History and Criticism. Cambridge and New York: Cambridge University Press.

Bryant, Brooke

In Music and the Myth of Arcadia in Renaissance Italy, Giuseppe Gerbino situates the pastoral as a vital and influential genre in the cultural fabric of sixteenth-century Italy, countering a scholarly tradition that has tradition-ally minimized its importance. This book offers the first comprehensive investigation of pastoral music in sixteenth-century Italy, reclaiming it as a complex subject worthy of in-depth exploration. It is the most recent work in Cambridge University Press's New Perspectives in Music History and Criticism series, edited by Jeffrey Kallberg, Anthony Newcome, and Ruth Solie. Works in this series approach music and its history from innovative points of view, often challenging dominant narratives and discourses.
