Jacob Sagrans


Jacob Sagrans is a PhD candidate in musicology at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music, where he is completing a dissertation on “Early Music and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, 1958 to 2015.” In this project, Jacob explores the connections between the choir and the early music revival, looking especially at the importance of the choir’s 109 albums of music written before 1750 as well as the role the choir has played in training performers and collaborating with period instrument ensembles. For more information about his dissertation, see the abstract. Jacob’s main research interests are in the early music revival, Renaissance and Baroque sacred choral music, Baroque opera, and music in relation to gender and sexuality.
