The Best of Bristol Lectures

Dr Emma Hornby


profile picture
Subject Area:

Dr Hornby was a BoB Lecturer in 2010 - she brought her choir along to demonstrate Gregorian Chant!

Her main research focus is medieval liturgical chant. She has particular interests in questions of transmission, orality, and the relationship between words and music in the Middle Ages. She is currently working on Old Hispanic chant, the repertoire sung in medieval Iberia until the 11th century. Because it is preserved only in non-pitch-readable notation, almost none of the chants can be transcribed and performed today. Despite this, the repertoire still offers us a glimpse of a sophisticated early medieval theological and musical culture.

Fruni is about giving as many people as possible the opportunity to experience the most inspiring teaching at UK universities, as voted for by students.

First we give students the chance to experience the best teaching their university has to offer, regardless of the subject they study.

Then we work with universities to put these brilliant teachers at the heart of their outreach programmes. We aim to create a publicly free national resource of outstanding university teaching.
