University of Birmingham
Music (British Music Studies)
This pathway takes the broadest perspective on modern British art music, offering case studies in the work of the �great composers� of the tonal idiom such as Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Britten, evaluation of the Anglican choral tradition and the British symphonic tradition, examination of the problematic status of modernism in British music before 1960, and criticism of modernist and postmodernist composition since World War II. Approaches are critical, analytical and sociological, with some reception history as well.
