King's Hall Music : Music Manuscripts and Their Afterlives
Study Day in association with the Plainsong & Medieval Music Society

By kind permission of the Vice-Chancellor of Northumbria University, and co-hosted by the 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 customisation, changing tastes, social turbulence, bad housekeeping and sharp practices.  A series of case studies will be presented by experts including Newcastle University graduate, Dr Eleanor Giraud.

Tickets: £8 (adults), £5 (students/unwaged), including lunch, will be available on the door (cash or cheque).  To express interest (for catering purposes) please contact Olivia Cameron 0191 208 8463 in advance.
