 Enlightened and Romantic German music criticism, 1800-1850
The foundational principle of the public sphere--that is, the conceptual space between the state and the private home which enables individuals to meet freely and discuss as equals matters of common interest--was not rejected by later critics.
This nationalistic approach to questions of aesthetic value had two components: it positioned all music perceived as foreign as 'other' or inimical to the values of one's own music, and it consolidated German music as a central feature of German identity.
Music criticism took on a new dimension in the 1840s, when Franz Brendel infused the Neue Zeitschrift fur Musik with the Young Hegelian goal of furthering knowledge through the critical process of constructing the grand historical narrative of spirit.

Colonial music was not so much music written in America before the Revolution as it was music that was brought here and helped define the people who were to make a new country.

 Anglo-Irish Music: 1750-1800
At the close of the year 1749, J. Lampe and Pasquali were engaged at Smock-alley; and the Charitable Musical Society, whose funds amounted to £300, engaged for that sum Lampe and Pasquali for a series of concerts.
In the year 1747, when the Charitable Musical Society of Crow-street removed from Crow-street Music Hall to Fishamble-street, the Music Hall (Johnson's) ceased to be popular, and hence, in July, 1751, we find it leased to a syndicate (including Stephen Storace, Signor Marella, and Samuel Lee) at an annual rent of £113 15s.
At this date the Fishamble-street Music Hall (Neale's) was still the home of high-class performances,[2] and, on February 11th, 1748, by command of the Lord Lieutenant, the Earl of Harrington, Handel's Judas Maccabaeus was given for the benefit of the Lying-in Hospital.
