Abstract

This commentary provides multiple suggestions for future research on text painting that have been inspired by Strykowski's (2016) quantitative analysis of height-related musical imagery. For example, musical features such as meter, harmony, and position may be incorporated to expand the scope of the research. The commentary concludes by referencing two additional corpora that may further benefit the quantitative study of text painting, namely, repertories that contain a dearth of word-painting, and an upcoming digital repository of Tasso-based madrigals.
