In this lecture Professor Deborah Howard describes the results of a three-year research project which culminated in the visit of the choir of St John’s College Cambridge to Venice to perform choral experiments in Renaissance churches. It explores the hypothesis that the subtleties of acoustics were well understood by Venetian architects more than 300 years ago. The lecture will be illustrated with sound recordings and visual images.
