Tudor music edit-a-thon

Tudor music
This Friday, 5 February 2016 the Faculty of Music at Oxford University is hosting an edit-a-thon to update and improve Wikipedia entries related to Tudor Music. The edit-a-thon is being coordinated by the Tudor Partbooks project at the faculty. People can join in person (at IT Services on Banbury Road, Oxford) or do so remotely. No Wiki editing experience is necessary (though experienced editors are very welcome!) as tutorials will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers by the Bodleian Library's Wikimedian-in-Residence, Martin Poulter.

Work required includes writing articles on composers such as John Baldwin and John Sadler, as well as writing about the various partbooks which have been so important to our discoveries of music of this period, also a number of existing articles such as the biography of Robert Fayrfax need expansion. Full information from the Wikipedia page, including a list of possible articles.

To reserve a place you need to contact Dr Katherine Butler at the Faculty of Music, her email address is on the edit-a-thon's Wikipedia page.
