Expertise Summary

Philip's chief research specialism has been centred on French music of the 17th and 18th centuries, especially the history of opera between Lully and Gluck. This area relates both to his studies of the French tradition in general (extending as far as Debussy and Messiaen) and to his interest in opera as a genre. He has also published extensively on medieval and renaissance music, including recent articles on Lassus (quatercentenary conference proceedings, 1996), Binchois (Music and Letters, 1996) and medieval/ renaissance historiography (JAMS, 1997). His other research interests include the field of music and language, and the related topics of the lied and mélodie.
