New article available on open access

A new article presenting some of the results of CLEFNI is now openly accessible.

The latest volume of the Chigiana Journal of Musicological Studies features a dossier on Music and power in the long nineteenth century.

In the article “Choral societies and political power in the cities of Bern and Fribourg in the 19th century”, Caiti Hauck describes some of the activities of the male choirs Société de Chant de la Ville de Fribourg, Berner Liedertafel and Cäcilienverein Freiburg during the 19th century and sheds light on their relations with the political power of the time. 

The article is freely available on the BORIS portal of the University of Bern.

Many thanks to the editors for their kind permission to make the article open access!
