On June 12, two of ACPA’s PhD candidates will perform in the Lutheran Church in Utrecht. Their concerts will be in the context of their thesis and are also part of their public defense.

On June 13 2018 Crawford Young (Lute player) and Elske Tinbergen (cellist), researchers at the institute Academy of Creative and Performing Arts at the Leiden University, will publicly defend their PhD thesis at the Academy building in Leiden.

Both their research cover a part of the Early Music-spectrum, more specifically, they each focuse on an instrument that dates back hundreds of years. Crawford  investigated what the instrument known as ‘cetra’ was in medieval and early Renaissance Italy. Elske Tinbergen dived into the name, appearance, development, playing technique of and music composed for the ‘cello’ in the Low Countries between 1600 and 1800.

As part of a ACPA PhD trajectory, researchers also give an artistic presentation to elucidate a selection of their work within the framework of their PhD research. That is why on June 12 Young and Tinbergen will both perform at the Lutheran Church in Utrecht.


“La Cetra Cornuta : the Horned Lyre of the Christian World”- Crawford Young        

Date: June 12

Time: 4.30 PM

Venue: Lutheran Church (Lutherse kerk), Hamburgerstraat 9, 3512 NN in Utrecht


Two aspects of music from the Trecento and Quattrocento periods, the “devotional” and the “courtly”, are presented in this program of works from Perugian and Florentine manuscript sources. Representing the devotional genre are laude (songs of praise sung by all levels of society, but particularly within the laudesi or confraternities), while courtly musical entertainment includes songs (madrigale, frottole), dance music (bassadanze, balli) and studies in musical proportion.
The short concert performance features the singing of Patrizia Bovi, as well as stringed instruments: two cetre from the early 14th- and late 15thcenturies, plus 15th-c. lute and harp.
