(p.182) Three Action
With Passionate Voice

Robert Toft

Oxford University Press

The art of speaking and singing well could not reach perfection if it lacked action, that is, elegant hand gestures combined with natural motions of the head and the body, as well as a suitable countenance. This chapter focuses on the range of action known in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.
