    Sporting Sounds presents an eclectic collection of essays, all of which are concerned with various relationships between sport and music. This unique book includes a range of international case studies, examines the use of music as a motivational aid for players, and the historical roots of music in sport.

    Anthony Bateman is a freelance writer and editor and an Honorary Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute for Sports History and Culture at De Montfort University, UK. He is the author of Cricket, Literature and Culture: Symbolising the Nation, Destabilising Empire (2009) and has contributed articles and chapters on cricket and its literature to a number of journals and books, as well as to the popular press. He is also co-editor of Sporting Sounds: Relationships Between Sport and Music (with John Bale, 2008). A former professional musician, he writes on music for The Guardian and other publications.

    The life of John Bale embodied the turbulent contradictions of the early Reformation. Reared from age twelve as a Carmelite friar, he converted to Protestantism as an adult and soon became one of its most ardent polemicists. Much of Bale's work consists of vituperative prose attacks on the institutional corruption of the Roman Church, a style for which he received the nickname "Billious Bale." Bale was also an energetic dramatist, whose zeal in staging Protestant propaganda earned him the sponsorship of Oliver Cromwell. While Bales's drama bears evidence of the medieval morality plays, he is remarkable for authoring the first Tudor history play, King Johan (1539), which displays the English monarch as a proto-Protestant enemy of the papacy. In his choice of topic and invention of genre, Bale anticipated the history plays of William Shakespeare. Bale's martyrology A Brief Chronicle Concerning the Examination and Death of Sir John Oldcastle (1544) may have provided the Bard with a source for his portrait of Falstaff.
