Angharad Davis (2009) is a PhD candidate in music history, currently working on a dissertation which examines musical representations of the city in the 1920s. She completed her M.Mus. in musicology at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, studying listener interactions with musical quotation in Berio and P.D.Q. Bach. Her honours thesis on the symbolism of birdsong in contemporary composition, for which she won the university medal, was completed at the same institution. Angharad is interested in the relationship between music and the environment, reception and horizon theories, cultural and social histories of music, and the interplay between music and dance. She has recently developed an enthusiasm for Sacred Harp singing and shape-note musical traditions as they are manifest in the U.S. and around the world.
