Jane Chapman, artist-in-residence at the Foyle Special Collections Library, talks about her upcoming concert and symposium in the Strand Campus Chapel on Friday 18 May. Jane will be performing with her harpsichord, playing musical pieces from William Hamilton Bird's Oriental Miscellany (1789). The publication was the first collection of Indian music transcribed from live performance into Western notation and adapted for harpsichord. Jane also explains that the Oriental Miscellany is a cross-section of art, culture and music and dance performance practice in late 18th and early 19th Century India.
