Musical Manuscripts and their Legacies: A Symposium in Honour of Jane Morlet Hardie
14 June 2013 at Level 2, Seminar Room, Fisher Library, University of Sydney (Camperdown Campus)
Convened by Alan Maddox and Kathleen Nelson (Sydney Conservatorium of Music, University of Sydney).
Manuscripts of different sorts and from different parts of Europe (ca. 1450 to ca. 1750) offer their students a great and varied legacy of musical knowledge and inspiration. Symposium papers will present a range of examples of that legacy, speakers presenting results of research into or connected with musical manuscripts of a variety of types.
The Symposium is held in honour of Dr Jane Morlet Hardie, a leading Australian musicologist in the field of renaissance and early modern music manuscript studies. Dr Hardie is known to many former and current Conservatorium staff and students having been a member of the Musicology Unit staff at the Conservatorium during the 1980s and 1990s. Based now in the University of Sydney’s Medieval and Early Modern Centre, her research focusses on liturgical music manuscripts of Spanish origin owned by the University of Sydney Library.
