“We are excited to rejoin Andrew Gant, music director and organist of the Chapel Royal, London, for three lecture recitals. This will serve as a ‘sequel’ to our 2009 collaboration in which music written for the Chapel Royal was featured. Further investigations of English church music will be explored, sung and played. Andrew Gant, as personal church musician to the Royal Family, is uniquely suited to present insight and humour to these singular events.“

(UK) New at Ashgate Publishing: "Rethinking the Baroque"

Contributed by Admin on Aug 03, 2011
“Rethinking the Baroque explores a tension. In recent years the idea of ‘baroque’ or ‘the baroque’ has been seized upon by scholars from a range of disciplines and the term ‘baroque’ has consequently been much in evidence in writings on contemporary culture, especially architecture and entertainment. Most of the scholars concerned have little knowledge of the art, literature, and history of the period usually associated with the baroque. A gulf has arisen. On the one hand, there are scholars who are deeply immersed in historical period, who shy away from abstraction, and who have remained often oblivious to the convulsions surrounding the term ‘baroque’; on the other, there are theorists and scholars of contemporary theory who have largely ignored baroque art and architecture. This book explores what happens when these worlds mesh. 
  

(UK) CFP: Domestic Music in Recusant Circles in Elizabethan and Jacobean Times, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, 26 Nov 2011

Contributed by Admin on Aug 02, 2011

A Royal Musical Association Study Day in association with the Sixteenth-/Seventeenth-Century Music Network (SSMN):

Domestic Music in Recusant Circles in Elizabethan and Jacobean Times
A Forum for Students, Performers and Researchers
Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge on 26 November 2011
Guest speaker: Kerry McCarthy (Duke University, USA)

CALL FOR PAPERS

Some exceptional music was created during the Elizabethan and early Jacobean periods, and some of it was inspired by the religious uncertainties and suppression that existed at the time. The wealth of music was possible in part through the interest and generous patronage provided by many of the wealthy, educated and influential English Catholics who retired from court to their country estates where they cultivated the arts in the freedom of their privacy. This forum is an attempt to bring together research into the many aspects of domestic music in the network of English Catholics.
