Abstract

Contemporary sources, mainly newspapers, throw some light on the brief professional career of Elizabeth Turner, an 18th-century singer and composer popular in her time, but of whom little is known today. Her musical output was slender, but as one of the first published women composers at a time when it was rare for women either to compose or to perform in public, her career has particular social and historical interest.
