About the Author

K.J DONNELLY lectures in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, UK. He is author of Pop Music in British Cinema (2001) and The Spectre of Sound (2005), and editor of Film Music: Critical Approaches (2001).


'Donnelly's book is a welcome addition to the slowly expanding corpus of serious writing on British film music.' - Jeffrey Richards, Journal of British Cinema and Television

'British Film Music and Film Musicals constitutes a valuable addition to the analytical literature on music in films, especially for its emphasis on the relations between aesthetics and the production contexts. Equally important is the explicit challenge towards the hegemony of mainstream Hollywood cinema.' - Lee Marshall, University of Bristol UK, Journal of Popular Music
