The Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations is seeking proposals for papers
for the 2007 Modern Language Association Conference in Chicago on December

Session 1
W.H. Auden and Music. On the 100th anniversary of his birth, Lyrica
invites submissions on Auden as lyricist and librettist, and on composers
who set his texts. Both formal and historical approaches are welcome.

Session 2
Prima la musica, poi le parole. Which is more important, words or music?
Papers may focus on either or both sides of this age-old aesthetic
argument, in any historical period or geographical context.

Send proposals to DrJSDailey_at_aol.com by March 7th. Questions may be
addressed to the same e mail address.

Thank you.
