Exploring how music is used to portray the past in a variety of media, this book probes the relationship between history and fantasy. The volume brings together essays from multidisciplinary perspectives, addressing the use of music to convey a sense of the past in television, documentaries, opera, musical theatre, contemporary and historical film, video games, and virtual reality. With a focus on early music and medievalism, the contributors theorize the role of music and sound in constructing ideas of the past, from seeking authenticity to deliberate distortion. Seeking to draw connections across media, this collection is relevant to researchers across music, media, historical and cultural studies.
