Early Music

Early Music has long had a prominent place in Cambridge’s musical life. Faculty research represents some of the newest intellectual and performance-based trends, ranging from reconstruction of lost music, notation, studies of bodily and sensory engagement in early-music listening, and medieval cultures of pastness and ritual.
