The journal offered articles of musicological popularization focussing essentially on the performance of music from the past on early instruments, and interviews with distinguished personalities in the field of early music, such as Andrew Parrott and Joël Thiffault. One column was dedicated to new releases (records, books and journals), and another to a discographical study of a particular subject. The journal published major articles by contributors such as Élisabeth Gallat-Morin, Jean-Pierre Noiseux, Gilles Plante, and Douglas Kirk. The Winter 1989-90 issue (Vol 11, No. 2) was the last to appear.
