Praying, Singing, Sharing: Multilinguality, Contrafacture, and Jewish-Christian Exchange in Medieval Song
Mary Channen Caldwell specializes in music in Europe ca. 1000–1600. She engages with historical musicology and medieval studies, recognizing the importance of notes on the page while seeing these abstract reflections of music as part of complex systems of cultural meaning and history. Caldwell is the codirector of Music in the Pavillion, a concert series at the University of Pennsylvania, presented by the Department of Music and Penn Libraries. She received her Ph.D. in Music History and Theory from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor of Music degree from the School of Music at Queen’s University (Ontario, Canada).
