Laura Protano-Biggs, Johns Hopkins University; firstname.lastname@example.org.The articles in this special issue circulated in draft form at a conference on the issue’s theme. The conference was convened at King’s College London under the auspices of Roger Parker’s European research Council-funded project, Music in London, 1800–51. I am grateful to the anonymous reviewers for their comments on this issue; in addition, I owe a debt of thanks to the conference’s coordinator, Angela Waplington; the discussants (Dana Gooley, James Grande, Katherine Hambridge, Jonathan Hicks, Laura Möckli, Francesca Vella, Wiebke Thormählen and Flora Willson), and, above all, to Sarah Hibberd and Roger Parker for their invaluable support as this issue was prepared. I am also deeply indebted to Sarah Hibberd for the sponsorship offered by her Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project French Opera and the Revolutionary Sublime.
