(p.631) Musicology
A Century of British Medieval Studies

David Fallows

British Academy

This chapter examines the achievements of Great Britain in medieval musicology during the twentieth century. British universities came to musicology very late and it was only in the 1950s that serious university study of musical history began. The earliest British position specifically denoted as ‘in musicology’ was the Readership awarded to Pierluigi Petrobelli at King's College London in 1975. Some of the key British musicologists include Charles Burney, Sir John Hawkins and Francis Galpin.

Keywords:   medieval musicology, Great Britain, British universities, Pierluigi Petrobelli, King's College London, musicologists, Charles Burney, Sir John Hawkins, Francis Galpin
