Elizabeth Llewellyn’s Heart and Hereafter Album release video series, Episode 6

8 May, 2021
In this short video, which is part of Llewellyn’s most recent album release video series, I speak about some of the songs included in this album, which I have researched in my thesis work. These songs are part of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Six Sorrow Songs, Op. 57.

McGill Music Graduate Virtual Symposium (March 2021)

16 Feb, 2021
In this presentation, I will be discussing the cross-genre borrowings between Western art music and slave songs in Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Six Sorrow Songs, Op. 57, No. 6: “Too Late for Love”, and the ways in which textual meaning changes when the poem is set to music and performed in this song.

University of Toronto Graduate Music Conference (March 2021)

13 Feb, 2021
In this presentation, I will be discussing the emergence of “sorrow songs” at this point in time in Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s life, with focus on the intertext of Western classical and slave songs in these Sorrow Songs, Op. 57 as well as the creation of a story in this musico-literary hybrid. I will also discuss his trips, experiences, the socio-political events of the time, and the influential black artists to understand how Coleridge-Taylor’s musical path was reshaped with this song cycle.
