From Tuesday 11th – Friday 14th March 2014 the Horniman Museum is hosting a conference which might interest readers of these pages. The Roots of Revival will provide a range of speakers on the 19th and 20th century revival of interest in Early Music, in particular Arnold Dolmetsch and his followers. I will deliver a paper on Thursday 13th March, with the title ‘Diana Poulton – a vital link in the chain’. I’m looking forward to spending time in the museum with its amazing musical collections and meeting old and new friends who share a love of music.
You can check out full details of the conference on the museum’s own web-site http://www.horniman.ac.uk/visit/events/roots-of-revival. Of course you can visit the collections at any time – but if you would like to be at the Conference itself you will need to book in advance.
