This project could not have been possible without the multitude of
accommodation and support from Thomas P. Sovik. His continual willingness to assist
me in my efforts, no matter what the situation, is ultimately responsible for the execution
and completion of this document.
My gratitude toward my major professor, Deanna D. Bush, can in no way be
expressed in words. Her incomparable sensitivity to both the Italian and English
languages has not only provided editorial assistance, but has also filled my research and
ideas with insight, imagination, and inspiration.
From the UNT library staff, I would like to thank Lynn Wright whose persistence
and dedication led to the timely acquisition of valuable primary and secondary source
materials, including Nigel Fortune and William Porter's dissertations and a 1637 reprint
of Amat's Guitarra Espahola. I would also like to thank Hector Sequera, Emily Newton,
and Lyle Nordstrom for their time and help in matters of performance.
Finally, as the last graduate student under the supervision of Michael Collins
before his official retirement, I feel honored to have worked so closely with him
throughout this past year. His teaching and research provided the inspiration for my
interest in this topic, and to have him take part in my own study of early seventeenth-
century Italian music has been the most rewarding experience of this project. Without his
masterful understanding of Italian music, language, and poetry, much of this thesis could
not have been written. Thank you, Dr. Collins, for your counsel and patience.
Here’s what’s next.
