Central European Music Research Centre (CEMRC)
CEMRC is a leading centre for the study of the music of Central and East-Central Europe. Its aim is to provide a musicological resource and forum for academics, performers and composers. It has dedicated study facilities, extensive holdings of published and unpublished materials (books, journal and newspaper articles, scores and recordings). CEMRC also offers a wide range of specialist expertise in research-led teaching and supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Centre for Research into Historically-Informed Performance (CRHIP)
CRHIP was established in 2004, as a result of a Science Research Investment Fund (SRIF2) grant of £140k. It seeks to provide the equivalent of a 'well-found laboratory' for research into performance through history and its resources include a collection of ‘period’ musical instruments, specialist technological equipment to support analytical research into technique, style and performance in early recordings and a collection of 78rpm records.
