Abstract [en]

ABSTRACT In the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries London was the capital of culture. Shakespeare, Dowland and Inigo Jones produced immortal art. The printing of lute songs was also in high fashion. In less than thirty years, 600 lute songs were published and printed in London. Thomas Campion (1567-1620) was a medical doctor, poet, musical theorist and composer. He wrote 112 songs and no less than ten percent had female personas. Most of the female personas occurred in the songbooks dedicated to Sir Thomas Monson (1569-1641), an M.P., Master of the Armory at the Tower and Master Falconer to James I. This article will show how these songs were tailor made for a homosocial coterie around Sir Thomas Mounson and how the songs with female personas in particular could have been an arena for codified messages on homoeroticism.
