(p.1) Introduction
Patrons and Performance

Suzanne R. Westfall

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about theatre performance and patrons in England during the early Tudor period. This book examines the Chapel Gentlemen and Children during the reign of Elizabeth I and then analyses the minstrels within the great households in order to show how ceremonial and incidental music was integrated with visual and rhetorical elements to produce plays and disguisings. It also explores the texts of early Tudor interludes, their characters, structures, and themes from the perspective of the private auspices.

Keywords:   theatre performance, England, Tudor period, minstrels, incidental music, plays, interludes, household entertainment
