Current Work

I've recently been working on several projects:​​

  • An article about the commercial arm of the original Philharmonic Society of London, the Regent's Harmonic Institution, including its published output. This material forms the basis of recent seminars I've given in London, Belfast and Maynooth, as 'Taking Stock: Art, Commerce and the Cooperative Model in British Music Publishing, 1819-24'. It was also the topic of my paper for the American Musicological Society Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, 31 October - 3 November 2019.

  • A monograph on the development of orchestral culture in late 19th- and early 20th-century London, chiefly at Queen's Hall, Langham Place (in preparation)

  • A monograph on the history and development of music research in Britain (in planning)

  • 'Tristan's Death and Lohengrin's Dream: Looking for Wagner in John Singer Sargent', Eleventh Biennial Conference on Music in 19th-Century Britain, University of Birmingham, 30 June 2017, a paper under revision as an article

  • A book review of Paul Rodmell's French Music in Britain, 1830-1914 (London and New York: Routledge, 2021), for Victorian Studies, forthcoming

  • An Afterword for the new essay collection Opera and British Print Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century, edited by Christina Fuhrmann and Alison Mero (Clemson University Press: Studies in British Musical Cultures), scheduled for 1 January 2023
