Great Hall, Stephenson Building, Northumberland Road, Newcastle upon Tyne
In conjunction with the PMMS AGM and the AHRC-funded Tudor Partbooks project, this study day explores what happened to music manuscripts once they outlived their original purposes. The few that escaped destruction frequently bear witness to customization, changing tastes, social turbulence, bad housekeeping and sharp practices. A series of case studies will be presented by James Burke, Sean Curran, Helen Deeming, Warwick Edwards, Eleanor Giraud and Elsa De Luca.
