The Voice and Histories of Emotion: 1500 -1800
Dr Sing d’Arcy presented a paper at a collaboratory organised by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (ARC CEHE) and hosted by the Performance Department of the University of Sydney. Titled ‘The Voice and Histories of Emotion: 1500 -1800’ the event brought together scholars and performers from different disciplines to investigate new methodologies and approaches that may help in exploring the role in which the voice and emotions played in shaping early modern Europe. Sing’s presentation looked at the new forms interior spaces that supported the musical voice during this period within the context of the Roman Catholic Church. His presentation was titled ‘Performing “period interior”: considerations on architecture, music and emotions’. Sing was an associate investigator with the ARC CEHE in 2013.
