Most widely held works by Peter Holman
Henry Purcell by Peter Holman( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores in detail the historical context of Purcell's music, dealing fully with the institutions he worked for, the origin and development of the various genres to which he contributed, and the sources of his music. In the process, a new picture of Purcell's creative personality emerges: a composer obsessed with formal counterpoint, extraordinarily well-versed in English music of the previous century, yet eager to embrace up-to-date features of the Italian style in the 1680s. --From publisher's description

Dowland, Lachrimae (1604) by Peter Holman( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dowland's Lachrimae (1604) is perhaps the greatest but most enigmatic publication of instrumental music from before the eighteenth century. This new handbook, the first detailed study of the collection, investigates its publication history, its instrumentation, its place in the history of Renaissance dance music, and its reception history. Two extended chapters examine the twenty-one pieces in the collection in detail, discussing the complex internal relationships between the cycle of seven 'Lachrimae' pavans, the relationships between them and other pieces inside and outside the collection, and possible connections between the Latin titles of the seven pavans and Elizabethan conceptions of melancholy."--Jacket
Four and twenty fiddlers : the violin at the English court, 1540-1690 by Peter Holman( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The royal string band at the English court had its origins in a six-man viol consort from Italy brought to England by Henry VIII in the spring of 1540. This book, written by the director of the acclaimed early music group, The Parley of Instruments, charts the history of the royal string band from its beginnings to the time of Purcell. Drawing on a wealth of documentary evidence, much of it new, Holman considers the previous history of instrumentalists at court and recounts the band's establishment at court in the context of the violin's place in sixteenth-century Europe. The first thorough treatment of this subject, Holman's book will be welcomed for the light it sheds on large areas of music history

John Jenkins and his time : studies in English consort music( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Jenkins (1592-1678) was acknowledged by his English contemporaries as a supreme composer of instrumental music. A conference held in 1992 to commemorate the four-hundredth anniversary of his birth, rather than focussing only on his life and work, set these in a wider context. Some of the papers included here were first presented at the conference, but are supplemented by others giving a broad conspectus of current work by leading scholars in the field of English consort music. The collection embraces various aspects of Jenkins's work and that of his contemporaries (Gibbons, Ferrabosco II, Mico, Cobbold); musical instruments (lute, lyra, viol, organ); and consort manuscripts, including their patrons and copyists
