At this roundtable, Dr. Zecher will present some of her current research on European travelers' descriptions of the music they heard in Muslim lands in the 16th and 17th centuries, discussing in particular their reactions to the sound of the Muslim call to prayer. Following Dr. Zecher's research presentation, she will give a brief overview of the Newberry Library's core collections for medieval and Renaissance studies, including information about recent acquisitions and new cataloging initiatives.
