The Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies/La Société Canadienne D'étude Du Dix-Huitième Siècle


Rice, Paul F., Canadian University Music Review


Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

13-16 October 1994

The twentieth conference of this society was held at the Delta Bessborough hotel in Saskatoon from 13-16 October 1994, under the sponsorship of the University of Saskatchewan.
