Description

Historically-informed singing: fantasy, reality - or an irrelevance?

The phrase ‘historically-informed’ is a badge worn by many singers who perform ‘early music’. Professor Richard Wistreich (Royal College of Music) asks just what that phrase really means, both in a world of musicking that embraces practitioners and their audiences, and in wider historiographical terms.
