Summary expansion
Lam (music, U. Michigan), describing himself as an historical ethnomusicologist, sets out to explore the ways in which Ming state sacrifices and their musical accompaniment were both orthodoxly intelligible and creatively appealing. He analyzes the intricacies of state sacrifices in the Ming as compared to the Tang and Song dynasties, outlines Ming music theory, narrates the musical events in the Ming court, and discusses the response to state ritual and music of three Ming scholar-officials.
