Exploring Music in Wales

The Centre for Advanced Welsh Music Studies, School of Music, University of Wales, Bangor, Thursday 21 - Sunday 24 June 2007


The Centre for Advanced Welsh Music Studies holds its eighth conference
between Thursday 21 and Sunday 24 June this year. Sessions will focus on
Welsh traditional music, music in early Welsh culture (including medieval
cerdd dant), music and contemporary popular culture, and Welsh composers
of the twentieth century, although proposals for papers in any area
relevant to music in Wales or Welsh music will be welcomed. There will
also be a joint session with Bangor^s new International Centre for Sacred
Music Studies (ICSMuS), focusing on Interchangeability of Text and Music:
metrical psalmody, hymnody and contemporary bilingual church composition.

A celebratory launch for the Centre's new bilingual volume, 'Studies in
Welsh Music - Bearers of Song: Essays in honour of Meredydd Evans and
Phyllis Kinney' (published in association with the University of Wales
Press) will be held at lunchtime on Saturday 23 June.

The Centre for Advanced Welsh Music Studies is closely associated with the
School of Music at the University of Wales, Bangor. It exists to
coordinate and develop Welsh musical scholarship, to promote conferences
and publications, to provide written resources in the medium of Welsh and
to collaborate with scholars in other Celtic countries. CAWMS also
produces Welsh Music History, published by the University of Wales Press,
the first entirely bilingual journal devoted to the study of Welsh music
and music in Wales.

Offers of papers and further enquiries should be directed to:  Dr Sally
Harper, CAWMS, School of Music, University of Wales, Bangor, LL57 2DG
(s.harper@bangor.ac.uk).
