REED-L: A Discussion List For Early Drama, Music, and Popular Custom

REED-L ( provides a forum for discussion and interchange of information relating to drama, music, and ceremony in the British Isles before 1642. It is sponsored by the Records of Early English Drama Project, which is gathering, editing, and publishing primary source material for the history of British drama, music, and ceremony in this period. Its purpose is to foster discussion of early English drama, music, folk customs, and the myriad of other activities documented in REED volumes but those topics are not meant to be limiting: we hope that those with interests in early drama, art, and music elsewhere will also contribute from their perspectives. If you would like to take part, contact the list-owner, Abigail Ann Young. Please include a short biography (not a CV!) giving a bit of information about yourself and your interest in our topic. We would also be interested to know how you first heard about REED-L. If you have colleagues with e-mail capacity who might be interested in such discussions, please pass the word to them to contact me at
