Title
Music in Absentia: Bishop’s Faculty of Music, 1886-1947
Abstract
Reverend Dr. Thomas Adams, Rector of Bishop's College and principal of its University from 1885 to 1899 established in June of 1886 the first university Faculty of Music in Quebec, the second in Canada. However, the author points out that it was a "phantom" Faculty which had neither professors nor resident students across its more than half-century existence, notwithstanding the fact that it bestowed degrees on some twenty musicians during its sixty years of existence.
