Singing the Collections at St Andrew's University Library, Examining the Past at Glasgow

A Blog Choir? Why not, indeed!

This is a truly brilliant idea from St Andrews University Library Special Collections. They got old music out of their rare books collection, formed a choir, and started singing. They even used old singing instructional manuals. It's inspired - we love it!  Read the blogpost on their excellent blog, Echoes from the Vault:-

Hunterian Associate Brianna Robertson at the University of Glasgow has been engaging with the Glasgow special collections in a very different, but equally imaginative way, looking at the vocal legacy of castrated singers.
