These articles are taken from the Second Biennial Conference for Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain, held at the University of Durham. The topics covered include: a study of music in late-19th-century English monasteries; works on psalmody and on Cathedral music at Durham, Westminster and Christ Church, Dublin; opera and oratorio; issues of reception and performance; nationalist and political sentiment in music; art and poetry and their relation to music; and the variation tradition in British instrumental musical at the end of the 19th century. One of the main objectives of this series is to place music in the context of 19th-century Britain - in other words, to show how music formed an influence not only within its own sphere, but also within other artistic and cultural activities of the period.
