Barely three months before the Civil War began, Barcelona was the meeting point of o the Third International Congress of Musicology and the XIV International Festival for Contemporary Music, two events celebrated simultaneously that were, both of them, exponent of the irrepressible process of modernization and Europeanization in which the musical activity and culture of that city was immersed since the early twentieth century. Focusing on the Congress, and on the leadership that Higini Anglès had in it as its General Secretary, in this article we have investigated its genesis, structure and organization of the meeting, and its reconstruction in number of communications read and preserved from the documentation about this International Congress kept at the Biblioteca de Catalunya, as Higini Anglès's Personal Collection.
