"Thanks Dominique! (and apologies for the typo; "Amazon" should be "amazing"..).  Yes, it looks as though the manuscript is currently offline, unfortunately.  All best, Mary"

Although I maintain an active interest in dance, especially Native American dance and issues of movement notation, I currently focus on medieval music, specifically Latin songs and refrains.

My dissertation explores the creation and transmission of the sacred Latin refrain song, from Peter Abelard’s 11th-century Easter rondeaux in the Hymnarius Paraclitensis, to the 1582 Swedish collection of medieval Latin songs, the Piae Cantiones ecclesiasticae et scholasticae. Although the chronological span of my study is vast, the continuity of genre, form, and even content that characterizes the Latin refrain song allows for a broad temporal perspective. My research is focused on three specific areas. First, the role of repetition in medieval clerical culture as it relates to the interpretation of the music and text of Latin songs with refrains. Second, the textual, musical, and manuscript sources and contexts of Latin refrain songs. Finally, case studies of Latin refrain songs in particular devotional contexts across Western Europe, and in particular France, with a focus on St. Nicholas and the season of Advent, the feasts of the Christmas Octave and Easter, and veneration of the Virgin Mary.
