Cher amis,

Nous venons d'apprendre la triste nouvelle du décès d'Alejandro Planchart.

Alejandro Planchart fait partie des premiers fidèles du réseau Réseau Musicologie Médiévale et m'a toujours soutenu dans mes projets.

Je garderai en mémoire nous échanges réguliers, et en particulier lors ma contribution à son article "Fragments of an Eleventh-Century Beneventan Gradual".

Merci cher Alejandro pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour l'étude de la musique médiévale, du chant bénéventain jusqu'à Guillaume Dufay....

  • Very sad to know this only today. R.I.P.

    A difficult individual to replace, since he had so much knowledge/kindness. As a result, surely he wil be missed from many.

  • He was one of the colorful characters who make conferences so interesting. I had a lot of great conversations with him — and about him! He was so animated that it's hard to imagine he's gone. 

  • I first met Alexandro at Harvard in 1963...such a long acquaintanceship, including earnest debates and even disagreements. But I am so sorry that the rich conversation is now, finally, over. 

  • I am saddened, I was hoping (perhaps unreasonably) that we could continue talking to him for many years and trade thoughts about early music. I owe Alejandro a lot--ideas, acts of kindness small and big, encouragement. In paradisum deducant te angeli, Alejandro!

  • A great scholar and gracious man, but also a fine composer (I could hear some of his scores at Santa Barbara, when I visited him), and outspoken critic of political barbarism.

  • That is sad news. Just yesterday I sent some details to a grad student that Alejandro had shared with me. And now he is gone. He will be missed.

  • A great man, so wise, so musical, such a fount of knowledge about music from the Middle Ages to the present, and such wonderful company.

  • An inspirational colleague. Generous in every sense of the word. And wonderful company. He'll be much missed. Warwick
