The Journal of the Royal Musical Association's first Virtual Special Collection, curated by and featuring an introduction from Lisa Colton and Brianna Dolce, showcases ways of writing about musicians in the pre-modern era. 

Focusing in particular on contributions which discuss the careers of musicians themselves, the collection includes articles within the following themes: how to narrate a history of musicians before 1400; types of musical profession during the late medieval and early modern periods; and specific groups or collections of musicians, and their networks of patronage.
