Centre for Research into Historically-Informed Performance (CRHIP)

CRHIP was established in 2004, as a result of a Science Research Investment Fund (SRIF2) grant of £140k. It seeks to provide the equivalent of a 'well-found laboratory' for research into performance through history and its resources include a collection of ‘period’ musical instruments, specialist technological equipment to support analytical research into technique, style and performance in early recordings and a collection of 78rpm records.
