Review of the Mellon Research Symposium ‘Machaut in the Book’, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, 11-12th April 2013
Program: Selections from Guillaume de Machaut’s Le Voir Dit, Dufay, Dunstaple, Gombert, Josquin des Prez, Ockeghem.
For today’s post I had originally intended to review John Toy’s catalogue of liturgical material for English saints in medieval Scandinavian sources from the perspective of my own project on Scandinavian chant, but last week, after whimsically having come to the decision to read through Leo Treitler’s collection of essays, Reflections on Musical Meaning and its Representations, I felt compelled to review that instead and save the other entry for later.
Here at Medieval Song we've developed a bibliography of scholarship on medieval lyric and song. The most recent addition is a discussion of some of the essays in the 2011 University of Exeter book Citation, Intertextuality and Memory in the Middle Ages and Renaissance: Volume One, Text, Music and Image from Machaut to Ariosto. We'd like to continue building the bibliography by crowdsourcing it.
