Insights from a Symposium

image of Greek and Roman Musical Studies

The twenty-eight papers delivered at a symposium entitled “Music in the Time of Vergil”, sponsored by the Vergilian Society in June 2016, suggest a number of areas where promising research can continue to be done in the field of Roman music. These include the Realien of Roman music, the role of musical imagery in Latin poetry, Greek elements in Roman music, Roman attitudes to music and musical change, musical responses to political developments, and the influence of Rome on the music of the modern world.
