The relationship between words and music has captivated and intrigued for centuries. In the right hands their combination creates art of great power, beauty, and subtlety. Yet interpreting the dynamics of their interplay has proved elusive.

In this stimulating presentation, Professors Graeme Koehne, Peter Goldsworthy, Michael Morley and Mark Carroll cast new light on the relationship between words and music.
