Description

This is the third in a set of four collections of articles by Michel Huglo to be published in the Variorum series. It brings together the studies of Gregorian chant and of later monophonic and polyphonic additions to the earlier repertory that occupied Huglo in the second phase of his research. Represented here are articles on the Kyrie, the introit tropes of St-Gall, an elegy for William the Conqueror (d. 1087), the versus by Venantius Fortunatus for the cathedral of Paris, the liturgical dramas of Fleury, early organum, the Mass of Tournai, and, finally, the Requiem by Eustache Du Caurroy. Ce volume des articles de Michel Huglo est le troisième de la série de quatre dans la collection Variorum. Il réunit des études sur le chant grégorien et sur les additions de pièces monodiques ou polyphoniques faites au répertoire primitif, sujets qui ont occupé Michel Huglo dans la seconde phase de sa carrière de chercheur. Dans ce volume, le lecteur trouvera des articles sur le Kyrie, les tropes d'introït de St-Gall, l'élégie pour Guillaume le Conquérant (d. 1087), les versus de Venance Fortunat pour la cathédrale de Paris, les drames liturgiques de Fleury, les débuts de l'organum, la Messe de Tournai, et finalement le Requiem d'Eustache Du Caurroy.

Reviews

'Apart from the easy availability of the articles, this series has added value in the indexes, with separate ones for MSS, place names, personal names, and chant texts.' Early Music Review ’This supplementary material and the occasionally out-of-the-way places in which the original articles appeared would make these volumes essential to any university library that is serious about medieval music. In addition, multiple indexes (of manuscripts, place names, names of individuals, and an index of chants) allow readers to identify and access multiple references in both the original articles and the addenda.’ Plainson and Medieval Music 'Huglo published three books and over two hundred articles on the history and manuscripts of Eastern and Western plainchant, late antique and medieval music theory, and early organum. Eighty of these have been reprinted as a four-volume set in Ashgate’s Variorum Collected Studies series, a dazzling display of scholarship on almost all aspects of early medieval music.'

About the Series

Variorum Collected Studies

The first title in the Variorum Collected Studies series was published in 1970. Since then well over 1000 titles have appeared in the series, and it has established a well-earned international reputation for the publication of key research across a whole range of subjects within the fields of history.

The history of the medieval world remains central to the series, with Byzantine studies a particular speciality, but the range of titles extends from Hellenistic philosophy and the history of the Roman empire and early Christianity, through the Renaissance and Reformation, up to the 20th century. Islamic Studies forms another major strand as do the histories of science, technology and medicine.

Each title in the Variorum Collected Studies series brings together for the first time a selection of articles by a leading authority on a particular subject. These studies are reprinted from a vast range of learned journals, Festschrifts and conference proceedings. They make available research that is scattered, even inaccessible in all but the largest and most specialized libraries. With a new introduction and index, and often with new notes and previously unpublished material, they constitute an essential resource.
