The Journal of the Alamire Foundation provides a critical forum for the most recent and outstanding research on music in or related to the Low Countries up to the end of the Ancien Régime. It appears twice yearly. Each issue consists of three sections:
- The first focuses on a specific theme.
- The second contains free papers applying the full range of musicological approaches on any relevant topic.
- The third section fulfils the Foundation's mission of promoting dialogue between the worlds of performance and scholarship by offering discussion of a recent performance event, production, edition, book, or issue.
The Journal’s distinctive ingredients guarantee it a unique profile. Its emphasis on research of the highest quality aims to place it among the leading journals in its field.
