FCT Researcher

Andrew Woolley is an FCT Investigator and member of the group “Estudos de música antiga” within CESEM. His musicological research combines archival work, codicological study, and musical analysis. He is a specialist on the sources and style of late seventeenth-century English music, particularly keyboard, and of Italian and French music in England c.1650–1750. His doctorate (University of Leeds, 2008) was on English keyboard sources ca.1660–1720 and he has been a researcher and lecturer at the University of Edinburgh (Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, 2011–13) and Bangor University (Lecturer in Music, 2013–14). As an FCT Investigator (2016–) he will research the codicology of Portuguese music sources ca.1640–1720 as the basis for a study of Portuguese compositional practice of this period, especially in relation to a wider European context.
