i was pretty strongly advised against doing my PhD in Canada because it would make it harder to get jobs back in the states. (i was doing my applications right after the last presidential election and it seemed like a real good idea to have an escape route at the time) i can only imagine this is even more of a concern when you're father afield. but, it's worth considering the job markets in the other parts of the world. as poor as the US job market for musicologists seems, the Canadian one is worse; but maybe France is in dire need of more musicologists?
It's good you're doing a terminal masters here though; because the whole combined MA-PhD program thing really doesn't exist too much outside of the US.

yeah, I wasn't too keen on Canada at any rate.

I think that as a whole, Europe fund the arts more the US could ever hope to. I could be mistaken, but I studied abroad twice in undergrad (Vienna and Florence) and was encouraged to come back!

thanks for the positive feedback, I'll keep everything in consideration as I make my decision.

Right. Usually I'm pretty nationalistic, but given your interests, Canada would not be the best place for you.
