Helen Barlow gave a paper at the Ninth Biennial Conference on Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain, Cardiff University, 24-27 June 2013. Entitled ‘Drove Mrs Bell-Martin to hear the Band’: sources for experiences of listening to music in the long nineteenth century.
We are looking for essentially private and personal experiences of listening to music that are documented, rather than professional music criticism or reviews of performances or recordings. By ‘documented evidence’, we really mean things like diaries, memoirs, letters and oral history – things that are already written down or recorded.
Hello! This is the first of a regular series of newsletters to keep you up to date with what’s happening on the project. We’ll aim to put a newsletter together once a month for you.
We will be trialling the next batch of updates on the test site over the next few weeks – the plan is to release them on the main site in the first week of June.
