Tempo, Gratia e Misura: A Study of Fabrizia Corosa's Nobilta di Dame (1600)

This volume presents a detailed study of one of the best known dance manuals from renaissance Italy. It deals with social context in courtly life as well as the music and intricate choreography of the dances selected by Caroso.

This book is a revised version of a 1986 Monash Master of Arts thesis now published to initiate a new series of publications and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music celebrated in 2015.

Although never previously published, this work has circulated among scholars of dance and courtly music in Renaissance Italy and has been frequently cited in the their writings. Accompanying the book is a video reconstructing some of the dances.
