The SSCM Newsletter

SSCM’s newsletter is published semiannually in the spring and fall and is distributed to SSCM members and institutional subscribers. The newsletter publishes general news of the society, official reports, programs of annual meetings, brief scholarly articles, lists of recent publications by Society members, as well as notices of and reports on meetings and colloquia related to seventeenth-century musical culture. Materials for publication should be submitted to:

Members should send news of their latest accomplishments: hiring or promotion, awards, recent publications, performances, and recordings. If you will be attending or participating in relevant conferences or concerts in coming months, but believe that the Society membership at large may not be aware of such, please send the pertinent information (title, dates, location, web address, contact person) for advance publicity in 17th-Century Music.
