Janice Stockigt

 

Janice (Jan) Stockigt completed her doctoral thesis 'The Vespers of Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745) in the Liturgy and Life of the Dresden Catholic Court Church' at the University of Melbourne in 1994. This work was awarded the inaugural Chancellor's Prize, and the Harbison-Higinbotham Research Scholarship for 1994.

Between 1997 and early 2000, as a Post-doctoral Fellow of the Australian Research Council, she wrote Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745): A Bohemian Musician at the Court of Dresden (OUP, 2000), which was awarded the Derek Allan Prize for 2001 by the British Academy, and the inaugural Woodward Medal for a significant contribution in the area of humanities at the University of Melbourne.

She held a Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship from the Australian Research Council (2000-2005) and during 2007 was a Visiting Fellow in the School of Music at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. She is a member of the Australian Music Foundation. As an Associate Investigator, her project 'The Role of Music for Lent and Eastertide in the Dresden Catholic Court Church (1710-1742): A Documentation', has been funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions in Europe (1100-1800). This project is now being developed in collaboration with Frederic Kiernan. Jan supervises at both Honours and postgraduate levels.

Her research projects concern sacred music composed, collected, and performed in Saxony during the lifetime of Johann Sebastian Bach, a study focused upon the music collection of the Catholic court church which uncovered an unknown psalm setting by Antonio Vivaldi kept in a collection of sacred music attributed to Baldassare Galuppi. She also investigates the lives and roles of musicians employed at the Dresden court during the first half of the 18th century. This led to a chapter in the book Music at German Courts, 1715-1760: Changing Artistic Priorities (The Boydell Press, 2011), which she, together with Samantha Owens and Barbara Reul, edited. Recent publications include 'Bach's Missa BWV 232/1 in the context of Catholic Mass settings in Dresden, 1729-1733' in ed. Tomita, Leaver, Smaczny, Exploring Bach's B-minor Mass (CUP, 2013) and (with Samantha Owens) 'Haydn's Creation "Shamelessly Mangled" in Melbourne: Joseph Summers and a musical libel action against The Age (1893)' in ed. Kathleen Nelson and Maricarmen Gómez, A Muiscological Gift: Libro Homenaje for Jane Morlet Hardie (Lions Bay, Canada: Institute of Medieval Music, 2013). Her articles have appeared in 19-th Century Music Review, Bach-Jahrbuch, Bach Perspectives, Eighteenth-Century Music, Fonti Musicali Italiene, Händel-Jahrbuch, Hudební veda, Musicology Australia, Royal Musical Association Research Chronicles, and Studi vivaldiani.

The database Jan developed - Catalogue of the Musical Collection of the Dresden Catholic Court Church 1765 - is now published online at http://hofkirchecatalogo1765.mcm.unimelb.edu.au. She has a great interest in Czech music. With Samantha Owens she currently is investigating aspects of the Leipzig Catholic and Reformist congregations during the first first half of the eighteenth century.
