You are invited to an Sydney Conservatorium of Music About Music Lecture given by Jane Hardie (University of Sydney).
Over the last ten years Sydney University has been building a collection of Spanish Liturgical Chant Manuscripts dating from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries. While on the surface these books seem to present just a collection of often barely decipherable dots on parchment they all originally had lives of their own, and hidden within them are stories, contexts and meanings. Today, as we take a journey from manuscripts to meanings, with some side trips along the way we will rediscover some music of earlier centuries as we interrogate some of these unique artefacts and uncover some of their secrets.
Jane Morlet Hardie PhD, FAHA is a musicologist and librarian who has been studying and writing about Spanish manuscripts and their music for more than 30 years. She has published extensively on Spanish sacred polyphony of the Early Modern period. Following postgraduate study in the United States, she taught at the Universities of Michigan and Sydney and was a Senior Fulbright Scholar at Harvard where she wrote a book on Spanish sources and music. She is now an elected member of the Directorium of the International Musicological Society, a fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, and attached to the Medieval and Early Modern Centre at the University of Sydney.
