Sterling Lambert

Sterling Lambert was born in London in 1968. After completing B.A. and M.Phil. degrees in musicology at Cambridge University, he moved to the United States, where he completed his Ph.D. at Yale University in 2000. He then spent a number of years in Boston, where he taught at both Tufts and Harvard Universities before taking up his current position at St. Mary’s in 2006.

Dr. Lambert’s particular area of interest lies in text-music relationships and issues of intertextuality in music of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A book on Franz Schubert’s multiple settings of Goethe’s poetry was published in 2009, and he is currently writing a book on the English composer Benjamin Britten and the influence of four composers (Purcell, Bach, Mozart and Schubert) on his music.
