Tamsin Lewis is a musician and historian (FRHistS). She uses words, music and song, transcribed from manuscript and early printed sources to examine aspects of social history in Early Modern England. Her books contain  from the 16th to the early 18th Centuries – popular songs, ballads and rounds, courtly lute songs and madrigals, theatre music, consort pieces and instrumental solos. Topics covered so far include the seasons and festivals of the year; weddings; aspects of London history from the Lord Mayor’s Show to the Great Fire; and other historical events like the sailing of the Mayflower, Anne Boleyn’s coronation, and the Plague.
