Theconcluding chapter draws the many strands of theresearch together around ‘the art of re-enchantment’. Early Music is explained as a processof re-enchanting classical music, and in so doing further clues as to why the movement took off when it did are revealed. Reflecting on (doing) art more generally, attention is drawn to the need for re-connection - with nature, knowledge, cultural entrepreneurship, capitalism, and authenticity. Only through developing our transformational capability to reconcile the apparently contradictory (whether this is old vs. new; head vs. heart; amateur vs. professional), will we trulydiscover authenticity. Our challenge as artful and authentic human beings is to allow space for (doing) art in our lives in order to become fully (authentically) ourselves, whilst also being prepared to act with authenticity so as to bring art more fully into our lives. Learning to live this unfolding dialectic is the art of re-enchantment.
