Contribution to discipline

I am general editor, with R. Barton Palmer (Clemson University), of Guillaume de Machaut. Complete Works, a new complete edition with full English translations of the literary and musical works of Guillaume de Machaut. Published by TEAMS / METS and The University of Michigan Press, this aims to provide scholarly yet accessible and affordable editions of the works of this important medieval poet and composer to scholars, students, and musicians.

I am co-general editor of the monograph series Exeter Studies on Medieval Europe (Liverpool University Press).

I have collaborated with early music ensembles on commercial recordings of medieval music, choosing repertory and providing editions and liner notes, including Gothic Voices ("The Unknown Lover", Avie, 2006), and most recently, the Orlando Consort (for a series of discs devoted to the songs of Guillaume de Machaut, Hyperion, 2013-).

I am a core member of the International Medieval Song Network (led by Ardis Butterfield and Helen Deeming and funded by the Leverhulme Trust).

I review submissions for musicology and other journals, and I also review grants for the AHRC, the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and the Austrian Academy.
