Where chapter 5 ranged widely across recorded music in modernist literature, chapter 6 focuses narrowly on live performance of music in the “Sirens” episode of Ulysses. Beginning with a study of solfège in the works of Joyce, the chapter carefully listens to the different voices in the episode, assigning each voice a musical part. A recital of the songs in the episode follows, discussing each song as a musical subtext for the events on the page. The chapter closes with a finale that overlays Joyce’s text onto the actual music of Friedrich Flotow’s “M’Appari,” so that Joyce’s musical effects can be properly heard and understood through narrative voicing.

Keywords:   “Sirens”, Friedrich Flotow, narrative voicing, solfège, Ulysses
