Search the Repository

The beta version of Early Modern Songscapes is a digital exploration of Henry Lawes’s 1653 songbook Ayres and Dialogues. Songs are indexed, by both title (when a formal title exists) and by "first line title", within the database. The Search button in the site's main menu (above) allows for both a simple search, or a more advanced searched targeted at a specific database field. For an explanation of the metadata principles used in indexing the site, see our Editorial Statement. To browse the collection, see the browseable options found under "Songs from Ayres and Dialogues" above.

A blank search (simply hit search without filling in the search box with text) will bring up all items in the repository. This can be a useful means of bringing up uiseful facets (to the right of the search results) for navigating the site.
