About the Author

Laura Seddon received her PhD from City University, London in February 2011, and continues to research in the area of gender and music. She is Director of the organisation Contemporary Connections which instigates musical projects combining historical research and contemporary compositional practice. She also teaches musicology and research/analytical skills.


'... she fully succeeds in achieving her aim, which is "to uncover some neglected works and place them in the context of early twentieth-century British music". Seddon is to be commended for focusing on several composers who have been overshadowed by the dominance of Smyth. Her highly detailed and well researched study of the Society of Women Musicians, for which she includes detailed appendices listing SWM members through 1920, a comprehensive list of instrumental chamber works composed by women between 1905 and 1920, as well as an excerpt from Katherine Eggar's address for the society's inaugural meeting, is substantial in breadth, and is highly recommended reading for anyone interested in the institution's history'.
