My Research Activities

Sing’s research focus concerns architecture and interior spaces of early-modern Europe, focussing on the Iberian Peninsula, Southern Italy, and Latin America; ecclesiastical and sacred spaces and their configuration through ritual and the nexus between architectural space and music.
