Abstract

The publication of the Encyclopedia of Music in Canada (EMC) in 1981 stimulated a significant renewal of interest in Canadian music studies. The parallels that exist between Canadian and Irish musical culture suggest that the production of a similar encyclopedia of music in Ireland would likewise stimulate a long overdue assessment of the intrinsic development of music in Ireland and its contribution to the history of Irish ideas. EMC is available as a guide to the form and contents of such a reference work. /// La publication de l'Encyclopédie de la musique au Canada (EMC) en 1981 a stimulé un regain d'intéret significatif pour les études de la musique canadienne. Les parallèles qui existent entre la culture musicale canadienne et la culture musicale irlandaise suggè-rent que la réalisation d'une encyclopédie similaire de la musique en Irlande stimulerait aussi une évaluation longtemps attendue du développement intrinsèque de la musique en Irlande et la contribution qu'elle a apportée à l'histoire des idées irlandaises. L'EMC constitue un guide de la forme et du fond d'un tel ouvrage de référence.
