This conference on Spanish 17th-century music, hosted by early harpist and Spanish baroque ensemble director Andrew Lawrence-King, is intended to provide a forum for exchange of views between scholars and performers, with a clear focus on the distinctively Hispanic qualities of this repertoire and its performance practice. Accordingly, preference will be given to academic papers offering insights applicable to performance, and to practical sessions that are directly research-based.
