Description
  • Collection of manuscript research notes made by Dr Ken James in preparation for writing his PhD thesis on 'Concert Life in 18th Century Bath'. The research was carried out using 18th century Bath newspapers and many other varied sources. Kenneth Edward James gained his PhD in 1987 at Royal Holloway College, University of London, for his thesis 'Concert Life in 18th Century Bath'. No other author to date has attempted to match the scope of this study, and Dr James' thesis stands as the principal reference work on the subject. The thesis covered three main areas of research: the development of concert life in Bath, the contribution of individual performers and composers, and the influence of music on the life of 18th century residents of Bath. The research notes were used to compile the thesis 'Concert Life in 18th Century Bath'. A copy of this thesis is available in Bath Central Library.
