Title: Music, Text and Translation
Edited By: Helen Julia Minors
Series Title: Bloomsbury Advances in Translation

Explores the roles that translation plays in a musical context, questioning the transference of sense between music and text. 'This volume issues a powerful challenge to everyone who uses the word "translation" in relation to music. The sheer diversity of its essays demonstrates, as no previous book has, the extraordinary intellectual and artistic fertility of bringing together the notions of music and translation - and the dangers of thinking we know what we're talking about.' - Peter Dayan, The University of Edinburgh, UK.
