Musical monuments for the country house: music, collection and display at Tatton Park

Brooks, Jeanice (2010) Musical monuments for the country house: music, collection and display at Tatton Park [in special issue: Nigel Fortune] Music and Letters, 91, (4), pp. 513-535. (doi:10.1093/ml/gcq088).

Record type: Article


This study uses the Library and Music Room at Tatton Park, Cheshire, to investigate how music collection by women fits into broader patterns of book acquistion and display c.1800, and how their activities influenced aspects of country-house design. It shows how women’s music-making and its representation in the country house contributed both to new images of elite domesticity and to developing notions of an English musical heritage.
