Music in medieval manuscripts by Nicolas Bell( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Music was an important element of cultural life throughout the Middle Ages. Most of our knowledge of medieval music comes from surviving manuscripts, almost all of them connected in some way with the church. This book shows a selection from the British Library's rich manuscript collections." "The history of music writing is covered from the earliest times until the fifteenth century, and the beautiful and often entertaining pictures of musicians in manuscripts show how music was performed."--Jacket
Sapientia et eloquentia : meaning and function in liturgical poetry, music, drama, and biblical commentary in the Middle Ages( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book thrusts the reader into the intellectual turmoil of medieval Europe. In interrelated studies of largely unexplored material dating from the ninth through to the fourteenth centuries, the contributors explore changes in functions and forms of liturgical poetry and music, and of biblical interpretation.Although the twelfth century constitutes the main focus, the phenomena dealt with here had roots in earlier times and remained in circulation in later centuries. The cultural heritage of the Carolingian intellectuals tied to the palace school of Charles the Bald is examined in a liturgical context. Forms and ideas from this period were reused and transformed in the twelfth century, as represented here by sequences, tropes, Abelard's poetry, the Gloss to Lamentations, and ritual representations or 'liturgical drama'. The two final chapters treat fourteenth-century uses and understandings of Boethius's De institutione musica and the new genre of sequence commentaries, both dealing with later medieval views on music theory and liturgical poetry from an earlier period, thus connecting the end of the book to its beginning. The sections are interspersed with philosophical reflections on overriding themes of the contributions. The volume concludes with an anthology of poetic texts in Latin with English translations and musical transcriptions

Pierre Abélard : colloque international de Nantes by Henri Habrias (dir.) Jean Jolivet( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Théologien, logicien, dialecticien, musicologue, Abélard reste un grand savant dont l'œuvre mérite d'être étudiée et enseignée. Neuf cents ans après sa mort, sa pensée, ses travaux, les polémiques savantes qu'il a nourries avec les grandes voix de son temps continuent de fasciner les chercheurs et les érudits. Le présent recueil marque sur plusieurs points une étape nouvelle dans la connaissance de cette haute et célèbre figure. Il ouvre sur des aspects historiographiques usuellement traités, mais jamais épuisés, des perspectives et analyses originales. Par exemple, mais non uniquement, sur l'environnement historique, scolaire et religieux d'Abélard, sur sa philosophie. D'autres thèmes y sont considérablement approfondis, voire renouvelés : ainsi, les relations affectives et spirituelles à l'intérieur du couple atypique qu'Abélard forme avec Héloîse, sur sa relation paternelle à Astralabe. Une extension du dossier épistolaire y est proposée. Un ensemble de communications consacre aux planctus et aux poèmes liturgiques d'Abélard des analyses stylistiques et musicologiques. Né en 1079, au Pallet, à vingt kilomètres de Nantes, Abélard n'a jamais renié, ni même oublié ses attaches bretonnes, comme en témoignent plusieurs de ses écrits. Et même si l'essentiel de sa carrière s'est déroulé hors de Bretagne, tout justifie sans doute que se tienne à Nantes la grande conférence internationale dont ce livre constitue l'utile prolongement
