About me:

Thanks for visiting my website. I am Jacob Sagrans and I am a musicologist who studies the early music revival. I look primarily at the role choirs have played in the revival of Renaissance and Baroque sacred music since the mid-twentieth century.

I finished my Ph.D. at McGill University in 2016, where I wrote my dissertation on “Early Music and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, 1958 to 2015″ (link to dissertation abstract). My secondary research interests are in Baroque opera and music in relation to gender and sexuality. I also work on diversity and inclusion in higher education.

Since the summer of 2016 I have been living in the Boston area and working as a visiting lecturer in music history at Brown University and Tufts University. A longtime choral singer, I am currently a member of Coro Allegro, Boston’s critically acclaimed LGBT classical choir.

To learn more about me and my work, please see my CV and my Academia.edu page, where I have posted many of my writings and presentations. You may also wish to check out my blog and my calendar of upcoming and past engagements.
