About the Author

Candace Bailey is a professor in the Music Department at North Carolina Central University in Durham. She received her master's and Ph.D. in musicology from Duke University. Her other books include Music and the Southern Belle: From Accomplished Lady to Confederate Composer and Seventeenth-Century British Keyboard Sources.


Candace Bailey examines the binder's volumes of Harriet Lowndes, Henrietta Aiken, and Louisa Rebecca McCord, daughters of some of the wealthiest and most influential families in Charleston, South Carolina. The bulk of this book is a deeply researched study of the provenance of these pieces, mostly for voice and piano... it teases out information on the quality of available instruction, the influence of opera, opportunities for attending musical performances in Charleston and abroad, trends in musical styles, the backgrounds of music sellers and teachers, and the existence of touring professional musicians and women composers...Bailey's careful research lays the basis for a reappraisal of southern women's accomplishments.
