Biography 

Marjorie joined the Department in 1975, and was its Head from 1987 - 1990 and again from 1993 - 1998.  In 1998/99 she was awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for her work on Haydn's folksong arrangements for George Thomson.  Using her recently published Urtext edition of Haydn's Scottish and Welsh songs and under her guidance, Scottish singers Lorna Anderson and Jamie MacDougall and the Austrian ensemble Haydn Trio Eisenstadt completed a unique 5-year concert and recording project in 2009 (see below).  Marjorie was a member and Associate Director of the Scottish Early Music Consort from 1976 - 1996, playing baroque cello, viol and medieval fiddle. She was also actively involved in University music-making, as performer, concert organiser and conductor of the University Choral Society and Orchestra . She retired in 2009 and looks forward to continuing with her research, while also having the time to enjoy her other hobbies – playing chamber music, travelling and hill walking.
