Abstract or Description

The calendar contains records of over 4000 concerts, advertised in London daily newspapers from 1750 to 1800: subscription concerts, benefits, oratorio performances, meetings of musical societies, concerts at the principal gardens. Information on concert programmes is provided where known, with editorial standardization of names, genres and instruments.

The database is presented in a universal csv format and also as a formatted xls spreadsheet that can be read in Excel. Simple text searches can be easily made in Excel or other spreadsheet software, and researchers may wish to devise more sophisticated ways of organising the data for their own purposes.

Accompanying the two spreadsheets is an information sheet (in doc and pdf formats), including a list of abbreviations and editorial identification of names. Researchers are invited to send additional information and corrections, to be incorporated in future versions.
