As a musicologist, Joseph Darby has given scholarly presentations at a number of leading universities and research institutions in the U.S. and Europe, including Oxford University, Princeton University, and the Juilliard School of Music. He has co-edited two books on twentieth-century music with Schirmer Books, and has published articles on the music of G.F. Handel. Professor Darby’s research covers a wide range of topics, including musical life in eighteenth-century London, the life and music of G.F. Handel, interdisciplinary teaching in higher education, the life and music of Dmitri Shostakovich, cultural politics in Soviet Russia, and the early history of recorded sound. As a concert violist, he has performed on faculty and guest recitals, and has been a regular member of orchestras and choral societies in the Monadnock Region.

Professor Darby's latest research project involves the history of publishing music by subscription in eighteenth-century Britain. The results of this ongoing study are given here: a spreadsheet of publication, subscription, and pricing data, and a companion catalog divided into three categories - instrumental music, books on music (theory, composition, history), and vocal music.
