Joscelyn Godwin

Joscelyn Godwin

Joscelyn Godwin (born 16 January 1945 at Kelmscott, Oxfordshire, England) is a musicologist and translator, known for his work on ancient music, paganism and music in the occult.

He was educated as a chorister at Christ Church Cathedral School, Oxford, then at Radley College (Music Scholar), and Magdalene College, Cambridge (Music Scholar; B.A., 1965, Mus. B., 1966, M.A. 1969).

He moved to the U.S. in 1966 to undertake post-graduate work in musicology at Cornell University, where he gained his Ph.D. in 1969 with a dissertation on "The Music of Henry Cowell". He then taught at Cleveland State University for two years before moving to Colgate University Music Department in 1971.

Amongst his work is the first complete English language translation (1999) of one of the first illustrated printed texts, the incunabulum "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili" (1499).

He continues to teach in the music department at Colgate University, where he often teaches semester-long courses delving into the life and work of a single composer.
