David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Versus - Traité inédit - dasianne et main guidonienne in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"Nice diagram! Is it from the article by Christian Meyer that you cite beneath it? Or . . .?"

David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Versus - Traité inédit - dasianne et main guidonienne in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"A similar sort of misunderstanding of the relation between distinct scalar systems affects the very interesting table from Metz BM 494 that M. Gatte' posted on 6 September. There, proslambanomenos of the Boethian 2-octave system is equated with…"

David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Versus - Traité inédit - dasianne et main guidonienne in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"I wish to explain that I wrote my response (below) after having read only the first of the four "pages" of discussion of this topic. My mistake! That is why it ignores much of what has been said here, also why I did not credit Prof. Meeus…"

David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Versus - Traité inédit - dasianne et main guidonienne in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"While the hand, as noted, includes indications belonging to several conflicting systems, I suggest that the crucial point is the fact that it comprises just fifteen notes, from Gamma-ut to a g-sol two octaves higher: in other words, a 2-octave…"

David E. Cohen replied to fra Innocent Smith, o.p.'s discussion Low B-flat in the group Cantus Ordinis Praedicatorum (Chant dominicain)
"Yes. I was addressing only the question of whether the theoretical scale system ever admitted a low Bb. That is, of course, an entirely separate question from that of whether, and when, a low Bb was included in certain actual melodies."

David E. Cohen replied to fra Innocent Smith, o.p.'s discussion Low B-flat in the group Cantus Ordinis Praedicatorum (Chant dominicain)
"Hello, Fra Innocent - Re. the music-theoretical aspect of the question --  As I'm sure you know, the Guidonian Gamut, which was the standard medieval scale system from about the mid-11th century, especially for plainchant (as opposed…"

David E. Cohen replied to Solveig Lerat's discussion La Varietas chez Tinctoris
"Just used TML to do a quick search of German texts (post-Tinctoris) in which the word "varietas" occurs. I find no evidence that any of those occurrences of the word is to be attributed to the influence of Tinctoris."

David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Vox infantilis, puerilis, iuvenilis, virilis, senilis in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"I do not wish to argue. But I would be very interested to know the evidentiary, i.e., textual, basis of your claim that either of the phrases you mention denoted "the education programme of the Pythagorean sect, and later of the…"

David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Vox infantilis, puerilis, iuvenilis, virilis, senilis in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"I assume that by "cyclical exercises" you have in mind the Greek expression "enkuklios paideia." But this term is not Pythagorean and means simply "general education," i.e., it does not refer specifically or exclusively…"

David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion Vox infantilis, puerilis, iuvenilis, virilis, senilis in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"Actually, Jerome in that passage is quoting verbatim from Isidore of Seville, Etymologiarum libri XX, Lib. III, Cap. xx (available on TML, 6th-8th century list, under the rubric ISIDEMU)."
Jun 30, 2016
David E. Cohen replied to Dominique Gatté's discussion On-line : The art of music collecit out of all ancient doctouris of music in the group Thesaurus musicarum
"Book II seems to have been influenced by Gaffurius, Practica musica (Book III, on contrapunctus), which was published in 1496 in Milan and exerted a strong influence on theoretical writings north of the alps for at least the next few…"
