The Art of Re-enchantment

Chapter 7 begins Part III of the book, as interest shifts to explain what is involved in making Early Music work. The chapter cautions against a limited appreciation of the types of ‘knowledge’ required in bringing early music to the stage and recording studio. Though we tend to think of HIP as being characteristically reliant upon an ‘evidence-based’i.e. rational approach to historical musicology, making Early Music work in fact requires a variety of different types of knowledge to be employed (includingboundary-spanning, interdisciplinary, dispositional, practical, and enchanted). The chapter explores the particular influence of three ‘knowledge producing institutions’ (i.e. University, Music College, and Arts Council) on the development of Early Music. The University (especially Oxbridge) is shown to play a crucial role in ‘spinning out’ Early Music; whilst both the Music Colleges and Arts Council are found to be comparatively slow in providing support to the fledgling cultural movement.
