On 1 October 2021, Professor Elizabeth Eva Leach will become one of the three co-editors of the Oxford University Press music journal Early Music. Early Music is the leading journal for anyone interested in early music and its contemporary interpretation, with the term “early” encompassing music from antiquity up to Beethoven (and beyond) when viewed from a historical standpoint.
Prof. Leach is thrilled to join the three-person editorial team for a five-year term: “I’ve edited an academic journal before, but not for a while, and Early Music is a really prominent in the field. It comes out four times a year and is richly illustrated with plenty of colour pictures to accompany a wide range of work from both scholars and practitioners. I’m really looking forward to getting to know the full spectrum of work from exciting writers old and new, and to working with authors to present it as beautifully as possible. I’m also hoping to oversee a few themed issues on specifically medieval topics, as these are the ones for which I will be the chief editor.”
