Product description


Singing Simpkin presents and appraises textual and musical evidence relating to the stage jig with exemplary thoroughness. The book adds greatly to our picture of stage performance generally, from Shakespeare's time to the Restoration. --Jeremy Barlow, specialist in English music

Lucie Skeaping s experience as a compiler... and as director of The City Waites ensures appropriate matches when information is missing. Her expertise is matched by Roger Clegg s knowledge of Renaissance popular theatre and comedy generally. --Jeremy Barlow, Early Music Today, June-August 2014

a thoroughly researched and densely documented volume, represents the most substantial and authoritative study of this elusive and much misunderstood theatrical genre --Stanley Wells, Times Literary Supplement, 18 June 2014

About the Author

Roger Clegg is Senior Lecturer in Drama Studies at De Montfort University. Lucie Skeaping presents 'The Early Music Show' on BBC Radio 3. She is a musician and broadcaster. Both have run jig workshops for the RSC, Shakespeare's Globe and with students of music and drama.
