This week is also our first group presentation! We welcome Group 4 (Ailsa, Amr, and Beth) to give their presentation this week. The seminar will start promptly at the usual time and we will start with the presentation followed by questions. Audience members are expected to do the readings (listed below) and be prepared to ask sensible questions based on the presentation.

For non-presenters, please read (all linked on the main module webpage):

  • The Houlbrook article plus one of either the Rose or Rich articles;
  • At least three of the primary source collections.

Remember: next week is reading week, so there is no seminar!

So, what is here is just one look at a deep and beautiful and sometimes painful musical expanse. The Spotify playlist is here and the text version here.
