Appraisal, destruction and scheduling
System of arrangement
Arrangement by the Aldeburgh Connection. Files are listed by the title and location of the concert and listed in ascending chronological order. Note that some files are made up of two or more physical folders, which divide the records into smaller portions based on type (i.e., promotional material and programs, correspondence, research notes, and music and scripts); if a file consists of two or more folders, the number of folders is noted under “Extent and medium.” File titles were transcribed directly from the folders, as labelled by the Aldeburgh Connection, which correspond to the titles and locations of the concerts. Concerts performed as part of the Bayfield Festival of Song (2007-2012) are grouped together as one file, following the file-naming convention of the Aldeburgh Connection.
Note that the performers, composers, poets, and songs are not listed in the description of each concert. This information is fully documented and searchable on the Aldeburgh Connection's online archive (see http://aldeburghconnection.org/archives).
