One year of the Symposium “de organis”

20/05/2019 — Research

It seems it was just yesterday, and it has been a year (May 20th-21st, 2018) since the Symposium “de organis” on the Reconstruction of the High Middle Ages Organ in the Gellone Abbey in Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert (France).

Dr. Heidi Gearhart

The event joined scholars from various disciplines who talked about music theory, art history, astronomy, philology, iconography, musicology, historiography, and performance practice.

After exchanging perspectives on the various fields we realised we have more in common than we expected. Challenges in our research are similar, and our
questions and doubts seem to be interlaced across the disciplines.

We are now preparing the proceedings for publication (forthcoming, PULM 2020). We are glad to share with
everyone valuable knowledge triggered by this meeting.

Dr. Albert Cots

I am very thankful to Dr. Gisèle Clément (Université
Paul Valéry of Montpellier) for believing in this project and giving a precious support to the organization of the Symposium.
