-- But why then a "new musicology", as Kevin poses it, at all, if the field is (to be
considered to be) covered by the traditional threefold division anyway ?, and where,
as to the contemporary scene, it often might not even be tenable (or desirable) ?
Integration and a more pluralistic view here might once more seem to be more
advisable -- don't we have a musiculture of (historical/geographical/technological)
synchronicity today...?
