Musical Explorations: Text & Music recording now available

Listen to Musical Explorations: Text and Music – Songwriting Through the Ages online.

Song is perhaps the oldest form of musical communication, with the earliest surviving manuscript dating from 3400 years ago. Song has accompanied rituals associated with spirituality, labour, education, entertainment and, of course, expressions of emotion such as love and grief.

On Thursday 6 October, leading Australian composer Katy Abbott Kvasnica and her internationally esteemed colleagues Jane Davidson and Stephen Grant explored text and music through examples of plainsong, polyphony, ballades, madrigals, chansons, lieder, and modern works.
