Paper 7. Test of performance

The detail for this paper has been amended so as to read:

The examination for this paper will consist of two elements, (i) a test of performance and (ii) the submission of an essay.

(i) The test of performance, which may take place before an audience consisting of staff, students, and others, including External and Internal Examiners, will consist of a recital on an instrument or in accompaniment of an instrument or of singing. The recital, which will be of not more than twenty-three minutes' playing time, will include a piece or a song (or songs) prescribed by the Examiners not later than the end of Full Michaelmas Term next preceding the examination. Candidates must inform the Secretary of the Faculty Board not later than the division of that term of the instrument chosen or the type of voice. Details of the complete programme must be sent to the Secretary of the Faculty Board for approval by the Faculty Board, so as to arrive not later than the fourth day of Full Lent Term next preceding the examination. Candidates must provide an accompanist or page turner (or both) if required. Candidates must provide the Examiners with two copies of each piece they are performing, in the edition being used. In addition candidates should provide the Examiners with two copies of a programme setting out the pieces in the order in which they are to be performed.

(ii) The essay should discuss the reception or performing history (including, where appropriate, the recording history) of one of the pieces chosen by the candidate for the recital.
