Montpellier 8: University of Oxford, 20-21 March 2014
The Call for Papers Has Passed.
Since its inclusion in Ludwig’s Repertorium, and Yvonne Rokseth’s subsequent extensive study and facsimile publication of the manuscript, the Montpellier Codex (Bibliothèque interuniversitaire, Section de médecine, H.196) has occupied a central place in musicological scholarship on medieval polyphony. The eighth fascicle, in both its physical characteristics and its contents, has prompted diverging interpretations of its relationship to fascicles 1-7, and its place within narratives of the development of thirteenth-century and fourteenth-century polyphonic composition.
We welcome papers on following areas:
• Dating, provenance, and status of Mo 8 as a collection; issues of patronage
• Ars nova or ars antiqua?
• National styles
• Concordances and refrains
• Intertextuality and text interpretations
• Tenor melodies and structures
• Analytical approaches
Abstracts of 300 words should be sent to email@example.com by 1 October 2013.
