A new category "odes to music"?

Post by Jonathang »

Is it worth having a new category for works which extol the virtues of music? Examples may be found in the compositions of Schubert, Purcell, Tomkins, Bateson, Handel and Lassus to name only the best known composers.

I think a new category would be appropriate, perhaps generalized to Category:Music about music – not all such are Odes. And you are right, Richard, this would not be a genre or subgenre; this is a cross-genre concept. See for example Music, when soft voices die (Charles Hubert Hastings Parry).

I created a new category, Music about music. Feel free to add this category to whatever work pages you find appropriate.
