Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations

American Musicological Society, Québec City, November 1-4, 2007


CALL FOR PAPERS: LYRICA SOCIETY AT AMS, QUEBEC CITY, NOVEMBER 1-4,
2007

The Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations invites abstracts for its
sessions at the 2007 AMS meeting in Québec City.

The year 2007 marks the centenary of the death of Edvard Grieg, and also
that of his lesser-known compatriot Agathe Backer-Grøndahl. Submissions
focused on these composers are welcome, as are papers focusing on the thin
red line composers tread as they seek to transform folk music and tales
into art music and opera.

Our second session will explore the eternal dilemma "Prima la musica, poi
le parole", with a view to devoting a special volume of _Ars Lyrica_ to
this theme.

Abstracts, not exceeding 250 words' length, should be submitted
electronically by February 15, 2007 to lyricasociety@aol.com, with AMS in
the subject line.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Mark DeVoto, Liaison Officer
Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations
