Bio/Research

Tom Gordon is a pianist/musicologist with an eclectic range of interests that stretch from musical life in eighteenth-century Labrador to the historical avant-garde of early twentieth-century France. Among his current research projects are an exploration of the Moravian choral and instrumental music in the Inuit communities of coastal Labrador. Forthcoming from these projects are a thematic catalogue of the 250+ manuscript anthems in the mission churches and a monograph on the indigenization of the Moravian mission music by the Labradro Inuit. Gordon's research has also informed several CBC radio documentaries, including Three years of provisions and two French horns, a profile of the brass band tradition in Labrador produced by Francesca Swann for Inside the Music.
