Musicologie Médiévale

Resources for medieval musicology and liturgy

This book is the first comprehensive study of the neo-Gregorian chants for the Proper of the Mass that circulated in the Beneventan region between the tenth and the thirteenth centuries. This extensive repertory demonstrates in extraordinary ways the struggles of local cantors to mediate between conformity to a standardized liturgy pursued by the Carolingians and the papacy, and a desire to maintain elements of the local musical culture. Some neo-Gregorian chants were locally composed, while others were imported from other regions. Both imported and local chants reveal the stylistic preferences of local cantors and the interconnections between chant composition and saints' cults and thereby shed light on issues related to the oldest musical repertories of medieval Europe, such as the Byzantine, Roman, Ambrosian, and Beneventan chants. Ultimately, they lead us into a deeper understanding of the musical culture of medieval southern Italy, a territory that, at different times, had been the theatre of incursions and invasions by many peoples (Lombards, Byzantines, Muslims, Normans, Franks, and Romans) and that was also the home to several flourishing Jewish communities. The book's rigorous historical analysis is supported by comprehensive tables, appendices, and indexes; it is also enriched by musical and textual transcriptions as well as images from relevant manuscripts.

Well, maybe not the first, after all the interesting publications by her and many of her students, but definitely a study worth a discussion among us.

Tanti auguri, cara Luisa!


Grazie, carissimo, per le belle parole! Speriamo di rivederci presto davanti a una bella pizza!

Grazie, Oliver, sempre attento e generoso nei confronti del mio lavoro. Spero di rivederti presto (sarò a Napoli a dicembre).

Cara Luisa

Anche il lavoro dei tuoi studenti!

È chiaro che anche ci scappano le pubblicazioni, perciò prego tutti di annunciarle in questo gruppo, anche quando sono gli autori. Fosse modestia sbagliata di aspettare che qualcuni altri lo fanno...
