Music, musicians, and community at the Florentine convent of San Matteo in Arcetri (1540-1630)
Discussants: Bonnie Blackburn and Marica Tacconi
This long-running series of seminars, convened by Dr Margaret Bent, considers all aspects of medieval and renaissance music. It runs on Zoom in Michaelmas and Hilary Terms and generally attracts a large international audience. Usually, a presenter speaks for around 30 minutes and then engages with invited discussants for another half an hour. The floor is then open for questions and lively general discussion. Each term’s seminars are announced in advance at and attendees are asked to register via the website. A zoom link is then sent out in the days preceding each seminar.
