Images of interest to musicologists encompass a wide variety of sources, and may include items as varied as abstract art, illustrations in a medieval manuscript, stage decorations, photographs of composers and their working environments, or the covers of records and compact discs (to name but a few).
Read a couple of the following ‘research stories’ by members of the music department, and compare the ways in which they use images in their work:
- Fiona Richards, ‘John Ireland and friends’
- Helen Coffey, ‘Painting instruments in the Renaissance’
- Helen Barlow, ‘Images of military bands’.
