Singing a song in a foreign land

Meyn, N. (2018) Singing a song in a foreign land. In: Association of Anglican Musicians Conference, 11-14 June 2018, San Antonio, Texas. (Unpublished)


In this lecture recital, Norbert Meyn (tenor) and Robert Brewer (piano) performed a selection of songs composed by migrant musicians from Nazi-Europe who settled in Britain in the 1930s and 40s. The lecture told the stories of some of these musicians, and also reflected on the problems they encountered as well as the challenges their arrival posed for their British colleagues. Finally, with a view to what is going on in our world right now, it asked what we can learn from their experience about nationalism and protectionism and about the cultural significance of migration.
