Known as the “Dendermonde” ms, and slightly shorter than the “Riesen” codex—but no less authoritative—it consists of a liturgical cycle with antiphons, responsories, sequences, hymns, a Kyrie and an Alleluia. Interestingly, Hildegard refers to all these pieces as “symphonies of the harmony of celestial revelations”; its overall structure consists of an overarching celestial, semi-celestial and earthly hierarchy.

MARTIN CODAX, 13th c.

Vindel Parchment. The Morgan Library & Museum, New York. [Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, Ms. M 979].
Barcelona, 2016. 33.6 x 45,2 cm, 224 pp. The Vindel Parchment, latter half of the 13th c, contains 7 cantigas de amigo—a complete work attributed to the Galician composer and performer Martin Codax—with music for 6 of them. They represent songs sung by a maiden awaiting her absent lover in Ría de Vigo. Cantigas de amigo are the most original genre of medieval Galician lyric poetry. In these short, lively ballads belonging to the European “women’s song” genre, a maiden in love sings— alone or accompanied by her female friends, sisters or mother— about her life, hopes and sorrows, and sometimes about nature too. The waves in the sea near Vigo are highly symbolic in Martin Codax’ ballads, imbuing his lyrics with great eroticism. Until the discovery of the Vindel Parchment, the only known medieval Galician cantigas with a musical settings were the religious Cantigas de Santa María of Alfonso X the Wise. The Sharrer Parchment (late 13th or early 14th c.) discovered subsequently, feature 7 poems by King Dinis I of Portugal which were secular and yet belonged to the cantigas de amor genre. It is not yet known which scriptorium made the Vindel Parchment although it must have been well equipped and had skilled scribes. Palaeographic evidence and the musical settings, e.g. similarities between the 6 melodies by Martin Codax and the music of some of the Cantigas de Santa María, suggest that Martin Codax was involved with the Castilian courts of Alfonso X the Wise and Sancho IV. Deluxe facsimile limited to 987 copies. Companion volume directed by Mariña Arbor, with contributions by Antonio Calvia, Antonio Ciaralli, Rip Cohen and Simone Marcenaro; foreword by Harvey L. Sharrer. (more info... ) [item no.9554]

MILÁN, Luís, c.1500-d.?

Libro de música de vihuela de mano intitulado El maestro. Valencia, 1536. [Biblioteca Nacional, Madrid].
Madrid, 2008. 20 x 29 cm, xxvi, 202 pp. Full-color reproduction of the Valencia, 1536 edition. Of utmost importance not only to vihuela enthusiasts but also to renaissance lute players and modern classical guitarists. “El Maestro” (“the Teacher”) was created as a method and is the earliest known example of Spanish tablature for the vihuela in print. The music it contains is exquisite: 40 fantasies, 40 preludes, 6 pavanas, 6 Christmas carols for vihuela and voice, 4 old romances and 6 sonnets. El Maestro is presented in levels from simple to complex, so that a beginning vihuelist can proceed from elementary to more complicated pieces as he or she learns. Many are of considerable virtuosity and compositional styles vary from simple homophony to polyphonic with virtuoso passagework. One notices immediately the great care with which the work was created and engraved. Alternate passages are given for players who wish to avoid more virtuosic parts, sections of pieces are indicated as optional, and Milan provides verbal tempo indications. The "vocal" notes in the tablatures for the Christmas carols have been painstakenly printed with red ink (a precursor of Bach’s use of red ink for the Biblical texts of the St. Matthew Passion). The music of Luis Milan is popular with performers to this present-day—both classical guitarists and lutinests regard El Maestro as an integral part of their repertoire.

[Bologna, Museo Internazionale e Biblioteca della Musica, Cod. Q15] Bologna Q15: The Making and Remaking of a Musical Manuscript. Introductory Study and Facsimile Edition by Margaret Bent. Volume I: Introductory Study. Volume II: Facsimile.
Ars Nova, Nuova Seria, 2. Lucca, 2008. 24.5 x 32.5 cm. 2 vols, 400, 686 pp. This manuscript is the largest international anthology of polyphonic music of the early 15th century. It was compiled in Padua in the early 1420s (stage I) and Vicenza in the early 1430s (stages II-III), all copied by a single scribe. The three illuminations are an unusual luxury for a musical manuscript at this period. It was acquired by Padre Martini in 1757 and is a major treasure of his library in Bologna. About half of its 323 compositions are unique; some others are shared with and complemented by the slightly younger Veneto manuscripts Bologna, Biblioteca Universitaria 2216 and Oxford, Canon. misc. 213. It is the most important source for the works of Zacara and Ciconia and for the early works of Guillaume Du Fay (with 78 works, many of them unica). About 50 composers are represented, including native Italians, and composers from the north who were sought after and made their careers in Italy. It is primarily a collection of mass movements (mostly Glorias and Credos, and a few cycles) and motets. Du Fay's Missa Sancti Jacobi was assembled as a cycle only here, and can now be linked with the humanist circle around the Venetian patrician bishop Pietro Emiliani of Vicenza, in which Q15 was compiled. The 109 motets include compositions in honour of doges, bishops and noblemen. 19 French songs were added at the end of stage I, and 11 laude at stage III. Other late additions are the cycle of 24 hymns (most by Du Fay), 9 Magnificats and 3 sequences. For the first time, the complex codicological history of this manuscript is unravelled and the importance of its many revisions examined. The first compilation was originally much larger; the manuscript now embodies two overlapping, superimposed anthologies. Margaret Bent tells this story in her extensive introductory study, which also includes comprehensive indexes and catalogues. She spells out some of the conclusions to be drawn from the partial destruction of the manuscript by its own creator, a unique and extraordinary testimony to changing taste and contemporary reception.

Valencia, 2006. Oblong, 11 x 9 cm, 56, 359 pp, 1 audio CD.

Royal Albert I, ms. iv 1274 ) and tenor (=Bibl. Tournai, ms. 94) are incomplete and less well preserved. The surviving superius part, reproduced for this deluxe facsimile edition, still has its early 16th-c. leather binding decorated with animal figures and vines; it is the work of Lodovicus Bloc, a master bookbinder active in Bruges 1484-1529, credited with binding numerous books for Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy. Contents: 22 songs without attributions; concordances allow us positive identification of most of the composers—Compère (4), Josquin (4), Obrecht, Ockeghem, de la Rue, Agricola, Barbireau, Busnois, Japart, Pipelare, Hayne van Ghizighem (2), Ninot le Petit, and Isaac. Musicological commentary by Honey Meconi, modern transcriptions by Miguel Ángel Picó, and an essay on the making of a codex by José Aspas Romano (texts in Sp-Eng-Ger).

Collection “Epitome Musical”. Turnhout, 2008. 29 x 40 cm. x, 164; 211 pp. Full-color facsimile in the original format. Exciting late medieval source with 99 songs and 13 motets, 61 of them unique. These works include some of the most elaborate surviving examples of the “Ars subtilior” notation, known for its experimentation in music rhythm. The provenance of this complex ms is still in dispute, being either 14th century southern France or an early 15th century Italian copy of a French repertoire. The basic corpus dates from c.1350-95; the ars subtilior repertoire by papal singers from Avignon and musicians employed at the Foix and Avignon courts is slightly later. Composers include Solage, Philippus de Caserta, Trebor, Vaillant, Machaut, Senleches, Susay, Cordier, Magister Franciscus, and Hasprois. The ms was owned by a Florentine family (possibly commissioned by them) and remained in Florence until 1861, at that time it was brought to Chantilly by the Duke of Aumale. Commentary in Fr-Eng.

El Escorial Ms. T.j.I ("E2")—also known as "Códice Rico"—is the third of four surviving manuscripts that preserve the Cantigas repertoire, settings in a narrative format relating to Marian miracles and festivities.

This codex was lavishly illustrated with 1,257 miniatures on 210 of its folios and depicts a vast array of human typology in Spain during the 13th c.

Codices Illuminati Medii Aevi, 45. Munich, 1996. 17 x 25 cm, 42 pp, 15 microfiches (=552 pp). Paris, c.1245-1255(?); vellum, 441 (of originally 477?) fols.; littera textualis; the music script is a "square" modal notation, staff lines in red ink. The miniature on the first page illustrates the divisions of music invented by Boethius. The 13 other paintings form historiated initials, depicting biblical scenes. The collection of nearly 1,000 compositions (organum, conductus, motet) is the most comprehensive and important source for the repertoire of Notre Dame de Paris and of crucial importance for the history of European music. The Parisian tradition constitutes a matrix where a musical language emerged—rhythmic, harmonic, contrapuntal—and a system of notation for communicating that language in writing. In this repertory, also, we see for the first time distinct, differentiated polyphonic styles and idioms, and clearly delineated genres in which they are employed. For at least the earlier layers of the repertory, this is primarily music to embellish the celebration of the Mass and Office on the major festivals of the Parisian liturgical calendar. The codex was intended probably for a French high-rank ecclesiastic. Since 1456 the codex belonged to the library of Piero de'Medici, the father of Lorenzo the Magnificent. Linen.

[Florence, Bibl. Nazionale Centrale, BR 20 (formerly II,I,213)] Alfonso X el Sabio. Cantigas de Santa María. Edición facsímil del códice B.R.20 de la Biblioteca Centrale de Florencia, siglo XIII.
Madrid, 1989-1991. 33 x 46 cm, 2 vols, 262, 205 pp; audio recording. Superb 8-color halftone. This MS was intended as a continuation of El Escorial Ms T.j.1, adding music and more than 500 miniatures which depict a vast array of human typology in Spain during the 13th c. It is a fascinating “work in progress”: containing 113 poems, room was carefully set aside for the the music and all staff lines drawn, but none of the music was copied. While most of the miniatures are complete, there are many intriguing examples of incomplete faces and detail—almost random in nature—providing a wonderful glimpse into manuscript production. It seems likely that the volume was copied after 1279-1280, and perhaps after the king’s death in 1284. According to Montoya Martínez the cantigas in the Florentine MS tend to be located in northern Spain and southern France. There are only four concordances, all with the Toledo MS (Bibl. Nacional, 10,069). Limited edition of 2000 copies, bound in full leather. [item no.2664]

[London, British Library, Royal MS 11 E XI] Music for King Henry. BL Royal MS 11 E XI. Commentary by Nicolas Bell. Performing Edition by David Skinner.
London, 2009. 35 x 50 cm. 36, 120 pp, audio CD. Of all the courtly arts practiced by King Henry VIII, music was undoubtedly his greatest passion. As well as being a talented harpist and composer, Henry was a great patron of the musical arts in Europe, and his reign heralded a golden age in English choral music. Henry employed 58 full-time court musicians, more than any other monarch before or since, including a chapel choir that was said to be “more divine than human”. Many of today’s great English musical institutions such as the choirs of Christ Church, Oxford and King’s College, Cambridge were founded during his reign. Several manuscripts survive to testify to Henry’s love of music, but the most important is the Royal Choirbook, now British Library Royal MS 11 E XI. This magnificent collection of motets was presented to the 27-year-old Henry and Catherine of Aragon in 1518. It is exceptional for the sheer size and luxury of its production, its exquisite and ingenious heraldic illuminations, and not least, its personal significance to Henry. The Royal Choirbook was commissioned and designed by Petrus de Opitiis, an Italian merchant, and his son Benedictus, a talented organist who hoped to gain a position at court. Together they created a magnificent large-format volume of 6 motets. Composed by Benedictus and a musician named Sampson, these motets were written to appeal to the king on the deepest possible level, reflecting both his royal status and his dearest wish: the birth of a male heir. The Choirbook opens with a sumptuous frontispiece, rich in symbolism carefully chosen to celebrate Henry’s lineage. It depicts a rose bush with 3 large blooms. One is the red rose of Lancaster, while the red-and-white rose depicts the union of the houses of York and Lancaster. The crowned rose represents King Henry himself. A pomegranate tree, shown blooming in the garden of England, is the symbol of Catherine of Aragon, while a daisy and a marigold represent Henry’s two sisters, Mary and Margaret. As well as being a breathtaking piece of heraldic art, the frontispiece ingeniously incorporates the texts of the first two motets, Salve radix and Psallite felices, with Henry’s name highlighted in gold leaf. Deluxe facsimile edition limited to 500 copies, in quarter buckram with vegetable parchment boards, with gold and colored foils, edge-gilding and slipcase. With CD recording by the “Alamire Consort” directed by Dr. David Skinner. $845 (more info... ) [item no.9125]

[London, Lambeth Palace Library, ms 1] The Arundel Choirbook. A Facsimile & Introduction by David Skinner.
[Huttersfield]. 2003. 31 x 41 cm, 230 pp. 3 English choirbooks have survived intact from the early Tudor period: the Eton Choirbook, and the “Caius” and “Lambeth” Choirbooks (now housed at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, and Lambeth Palace Library, respectively). While Eton is known to have originated from the great college of that name, the provenance of Caius and Lambeth has, until now, been a complete mystery. The man responsible for their production has long been held to be Edward Higgons, a prominent Tudor lawyer and multiple plurist who was a canon of St. Stephen's, Westminster, where Nicholas Ludford, a principal composer in both manuscripts, was employed from the early 1520s. On the last page of the Caius Choirbook is written the inscription “Ex dono et opere Edwardi Higgons cuius ecclsie canonicis”, which may be translated as “By the gift and work of Edward Higgons, canon of this church”. The “ecclesia” is now believed to be St. Stephen's, although the origins of the Lambeth Choirbooks have been much less well understood. It has, however, been generally accepted that it too was produced for one of the ecclesiastical institutions with which Higgons was associated. This is a story of one music manuscript of thousands that must have circulated in late medieval England; it is also a narrative of only one musical institution from the hundreds that were in existence before the onslaught of Henry VIII's Reformation. The bulk of this Roxburghe Club volume constitutes a full-color facsimile of London, Lambeth Palace Library, MS 1 (“The Arundel Choirbook”), providing a single but significant resource that richly illustrates England's early musical heritage. The manuscript contains 7 masses, 4 magnificat settings and 8 motets. Robert Fayrfax is represented by 8 works, followed by Ludford (2), Sturton (1) and Lambe (1). The Arundel Choirbook is one of just three major choirbooks that survive from c.1490 to 1530. The original size of the choirbook, in “elephant” folio, has been reduced 50%–to 12.5 x 16.5 inches–for this facsimile edition. All text printed in letterset; total edition of 300 copies. Quarter leather bound, wood boards. (few copies remaining). $795 (more info... ) [item no.8361]


[London, Royal College of Music, Ms. 1070] The Anne Boleyn Music Book. Introduction by Thomas Schmidt and David Skinner with Katja Airaksinen-Monier.
Diamm Facsimiles, 6. Oxford, 2017. 21 x 30 cm. 58, 270 pp. This modestly-sized but beautifully written book contains sacred motets by some of Europe’s most famous composers, specifically those associated with the French Royal Court of the early 16th century. An inscription in an early sixteenth-century English hand reads “M[ist]res A Bolleyene Nowe thus” followed by musical motto of three minims and a longa; that she is referenced “mistress” indicates that the inscription was certainly made before she became queen in 1533; “nowe thus” was the motto of her father. Despite considerable interest by musicologists in past decades, the book remains something of a mystery: clearly made in France, but associated in a yet-to-be-determined way with Henry VIII's second wife. For the facsimile production the RCM removed the MS from its 19th-century binding, making it possible to study the layers and compilation. Commentary includes chapters on the historical context of the book, a new analysis of its structure, the significance of the music it contains with some new ascriptions, an analysis of the decoration, and a list of concordances and editions.

Late Medieval and Early Renaissance Music in Facsimile, 2. Chicago, 2008. 26 x 36 cm, 208 pp. More than forty years ago in the state archives of Lucca, Italy, Reinhard Strohm noticed that bindings on some of the books consisted of the pages of a centuries-old music manuscript. In the following years, Strohm worked with the archivists to remove these leaves and reassemble as much as possible of the original manuscript, a major cultural recovery now known as The Lucca Choirbook. The recovered volume comprises what remains of a gigantic cathedral codex commissioned in Bruges around 1463 and containing English, Franco-Flemish, and Italian sacred music of the 15th century—including works by Dufay and Isaac. This facsimile of the choirbook includes all the known leaves, ordered according to their proper placement in the original codex. In the introduction, Strohm tells the fascinating story of this choirbook, identifying its early users and reconstructing its travel from Bruges to Lucca. Linen. $214 (more info... ) [item no.7081]


Manuscripts of English Thirteenth-Century Polyphony. Facsimile Edition by William J. Summers and Peter M. Lefferts.
Early English Church Music, 57. London, 2016. 30 x 43 cm. 340 pp. The third facsimile collection to be published by Early English Church Music, Volume 57 attests to the quality and depth of the polyphonic traditions during the long reigns of Henry III and his son Edward I, when the music of English high culture achieved a technical autonomy from the common international Anglo-French repertoire of the period. Assembling within the covers of one publication a set of facsimiles of the extant remains of native origin, it comprises images of more than 60 sources of 13th-c. polyphony, including the Reading rota, the conductus-rondellus Flos regalis, and the Worcester fragments, here reunited from three codices. The large page layout adopted enables almost all the MSS to be reproduced at full size for direct comparison of different sources, layouts and dimensions.

[Oxford, Eton College Library, MS 178] The Eton Choirbook. A Full-Colour Facsimile of Eton College Library, MS 178.
Oxford, 2010. 30.6 x 42,7 cm, 60 + vi, 252 + vi pp. One of the most iconic of music manuscripts, the Eton Choirbook is of unique importance, both in its own right as a cultural artefact and as a source of English choral polyphony composed during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Had it perished, along with so many other (less fortunate) pre-Reformation music manuscripts, our knowledge of a critical moment in the history of English music would have been immensely diminished. Ever since it was first copied for use in the college chapel in the early 1500s, the choirbook has been continuously in the possession of Eton College. Several composers whose works were included in it had close associations with the college, not least Robert Wylkynson, who served as the college’s informator choristarum from 1500. Other composers represented include Banastre, Browne, Cornyshe, Davy, Fawkyner, Fayrfax, Hygons, Lambe and Turges. Most of its original contents (67 out of a total of 93 pieces) were votive antiphons, or devotional motets of prayer and praise, sung each evening to the Virgin Mary, the college’s dedicatee. The Salve ceremony, familiar to worshippers throughout Catholic Europe, lay at the heart of Eton College’s raison d’être as a chantry college: the Eton Choirbook is an eloquent witness to this flowering of devotional culture on the eve of the Reformation. The manuscript is also a work of consummate artistry, copied by an experienced scribe on large vellum leaves, and illuminated by a professional limner. Even in its in-complete state (nearly half of its original 224 leaves have been lost), the Eton Choirbook is the undoubted queen of early Tudor music manuscripts. Commentary by Magnus Williamson.

Valencia, 2007-2008 Heart shaped, 22 x 16 cm, 144 pp + commentary. This exceptional MS, closed, is shaped like a heart; it opens into the shape of a butterfly composed of the hearts of the two lovers who send love messages to one another in each one of the songs. When the word “heart” appears in the texts, it is represented by a pictogram. Two full-page illustrations appear in the codex. In the first, Cupid throws arrows at a young girl while at his side Fortune spins his wheel. In the other, two lovers approach one another lovingly. Throughout the MS the staff lines, music and love poems are surrounded by borders made up of animals, birds, dogs, cats and all kinds of flowers and plants highlighted in abundant and delicate gold. The book gets its name from Jean de Montchenu, a nobleman, apostolic prothonotary, Bishop of Agen (1477) and later of Vivier (1478-1497) who commissioned the work. The music repertoire consists of French and Italian songs written by Dufay, Ockeghem, Busnois and their contemporaries.

[Salamanca, Archivo de la Catedral, ms 2631] Codex Calixtinus de Salamanca.
Burgos, 2012. 27 x 37 cm, 246 pp + commentary. Students and scholars of the camino are now fortunate to have a second facsimile of Codex Calixtinus, based on the Salamanca copy. Known as Ms. S, and copied around 1325 in Santiago de Compostela, this counts as one of four complete (long) versions of the Jacobus compilation and at the same time one of four that are illustrated. According to M. Alison Stones the meagerness of Jacobus transmissions is a bit baffling—compared to about 200 sources for the Historia Turpini (Book IV), so the facsimile of the Salamanca source is all the more welcome. Telltale aspects of Ms. S show it has a slightly different lineage from Ms. C, and in that way the text and illustrations offer the historian new insights and challenges. Salamanca comes down to us without title page and the initial portrait of Pope Calixtus has been vandalized, however, other than this the manscript is beautifully executed and adorned with 5 stunning illuminations, 1 of them a whole page. Although Salamanca provides full texts for the chants for the office and mass of St. James, the compiler didn't get around to enter the pitches for the chant around the a single reference line (usually C or F). Limited edition of 898 copies. Artisan binding in full leather with gold decoration on spine, pasted etikette and buckram-leather covered slipcase. (more info... ) [item no.9323]

[Vatican, Bibl. Apost., Urb. lat. 1411] Rome, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana Ms. Urbinates latini 1411. Facsimile Edition.
Codices e Vaticanis Selecti, Series Minor, 9. Lucca, 2005. 14 x 22 cm, 36, 54 pp. Deluxe full-color facsimile of a small manuscript, copied in Florence, ca. 1445, with a repertory of Franco-Burgundian music. The collection may have been intended for the use of a private circle of “cognoscenti”, as is suggested by an inscription on the verso of the opening page indicating that it belonged to “Piero di Chosimo de Medicj” [d.1469] and was given by him to “Piero de Archangelo de li Bonaventuri da Urbino”. After entering the ducal library in Urbino (signalled by the presence of a large heraldic illustration on fol.2v) it remained there until the transfer of the library to the Vatican in 1657. Unusual features of the ms are its inclusion of two settings by Ciconia and Dunstable of Giustiniani’s “O rosa bella”, three works, two of them unica, by Dufay, and twelve songs by Binchois (including some of his best), marking the earliest appearance in Florence of the music of this master of courtly French chansons. There is evidence that Urb. lat. 1411 not only belonged to the Medicis but was drawn upon for music to entertain them and their guests, showing that by 1440 the pre-eminence of Franco-Burgundian music was well established in Florence.

The notation is of the ars nova type written on four- or five-line red staves, generally 8 per page. Breves can be represented by unison groups of 2 or 3 semibreves or in polyphonic sections by the breve too. The notation of polyphonic sections may employ two distinct parts, or may appear as a single part with a drone, or it may be only implicit with the used of the name "tenor", above which a further voice is assumed. The MS also employs mensuration signs and red notes. Handsomely bound in quarter leather with vellum paper boards. $699 (more info... ) [item no.1416]

Libro de diferentes cifras (1705).
Cifras para Tañer, 1. Madrid, 2008. 20 x 29 cm, xxiv, 73 pp. Study and transcription by Francisco Alfonso Valdivia. Preserved in the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid, this important manuscript for 5-string guitar dated 1705 contains 107 anonymous pieces, with the exception of one attributed to Francesco Corbetta. Gaspar Sanz is well represented, both in the literal copy of the Instucción de música as in the reuse of some of its differences; several pieces are related to works of Santiago de Murcia which could mark the first cronological source of this guitarist. There are many French inpired dances together with the genuinely Spanish ones. Wrappers. $41 [item no.6875]

Songs in British Sources c.1150-1300. Transcribed and Edited by Helen Deeming.
Musica Britannica, XCV. London, 2013. 4º, lx, 226 pp. Modern critical edition. Partly as a result of the nature of their manuscript transmission, songs from the period 1150 to 1300 have remained unknown or unnoticed with the exception of Sumer is icumen in and Angelus ad virginem. The rich variety of content in MB95 is therefore an important corrective and addition to our knowledge of the period, and is evidence for a vigorous interest in the cultivation and preservation of song in the 12th and 13th centuries. Not all the songs edited here originated in Britain, but their presence in MSS of British origin suggests that all were at least sung here. Most items are found uniquely in single music sources, or with text-only concordances, and around half are published for the first time. Buckram. $175 [item no.6757]

[Busse Berger, Anna Maria and Massimiliano Rossi] Memory and Invention. Medieval and Renaissance Literature, Art and Music. Acts of an International Conference (Florence, Villa I Tatti, May 11, 2006). Edited by Anna Maria Busse Berger and Massimiliano Rossi.
Villa i Tatti - The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, 24. Florence, 2009. 8º, xix, 175 pp. The art of memory—ars memorativa—profoundly impacted Western culture throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Ever since Aby Warburg inscribed the word Mnemosyne over the door of the institute that bears his name, modern scholarship has increasingly recognized and explored the central role of memorization, with all its various techniques and applications, in the practice of writers, composers, and artists. This volume presents the papers of a conference held at Villa I Tatti on May 11, 2006, conceived and organized by Anna Maria Busse Berger and Massimiliano Rossi. Ranging from literature and music to painting and architecture, the eight essays collected here pose new questions about the relationship between memory as a tool for creative expression and its formative impact on patterns of thought and modes of organizing knowledge.
