The Musical Repertories of the Liturgy of Southern Italy and Beneventan Sources, Alleluia Melodies after 1100, and the change in transmission of instrumental music in Fifteenth-Century Europe are provided. John McCaughey's concert programme of medieval troped chants for Pentecost juxtaposed with traditional monophonic work songs from Vietnam, Thailand and Western Java as well as various contemporary compositions are also included. Songs of the Dove and the Nightingale provides a comprehensive survey of sacred and secular music within the context of a multilingual and intercultural milieu where influences and exchanges of liturgico-musical materials took place between many different ethnic groups. Structural relations between music and text are explored through the analysis of textual punctuation and the structured repetition of the refrain.
