HILDEGARD VON BINGEN, 1098-1179

[Lieder, selections, “Riesencodex”] Hildegard von Bingen Lieder. Faksimile. Riesencodex (Hs.2) der Hessischen Landesbibliothek Wiesbaden, fol. 466-481v. Herausgegeben von Lorenz Welker mit einem Kommentar von Michael Klaper.
Elementa Musicae, 1. Wiesbaden, 2/ 2005. 35 x 49 cm, xl, 32 pp. A splendid full-color reproduction of the musical portion of the “Riesencodex” (a unique “Gesamtausgabe” of Hildegard’s writings), consisting of altogether 75 songs and the play “Ordo Virtutum” (”Ritual of Virtues”). Like the Dendermonde source from the same period (c.1175), the Riesencodex—“giant codex”—transmits these “songs” in the form of a liturgical cycle of antiphons, responsories, sequences, hymns, a Kyrie and Alleluia. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Linen. $299 (more info... ) [item no.7531]


Symphonia harmoniae caelestium revelationum. Dendermonde, St.-Pieters & Paulusabdij, Ms. Cod. 9. Introduction: Peter van Poucke.
Facsimile Series: I/A.8. Peer, 1991. 21 x 31 cm, xvi, 36 pp. Full-color halftone of the music portion (f.153-170) of a unique source written at the Rupertsberg scriptorium c.1175 under Hildegard’s supervision and sent to the Cistercian abbey of Villers in the province of Brabant in Belgium approximately that same year. 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. Hardbound in linen with embossed titles. $89 (more info... ) [item no.3893]

[Cambridge, Corpus Christi, Ms. 473] The Winchester Troper. Facsimile Edition and Introduction by Susan Rankin.
Early English Church Music, 50. London, 2007. 30 x 43 cm. 104, 102 pp. The Winchester Troper, compiled in the early 11th century and added to until the early 12th, was originally copied out and used at Winchester Cathedral. It is regarded a seminal text for the study of Anglo-Saxon musical and liturgical practice. The introduction explains how and why the book was made, and how its liturgical contents were designed. Studies of the hands of over 50 text scribes are accompanied by the first full account of Anglo-Saxon musical notation, and a study of the most innovative element of the collection, a series of 174 organa, representing a musical practice not recorded elsewhere in Europe before the 13th century.

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.

This excellent 4-color facsimile allows the student to examine and identify the different types of ink colors, scripts, note shapes, and rubrics, and to draw useful conclusions regarding the development and codicological structure of the codex.

[El Escorial, Bibl. del Monasterio, T.j.1 “E2”] Cantigas de Alfonso X El Sabio.
Colección Scriptorium. Madrid, 2010. 35 x 50 cm, 512 pp + commentary. 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. Although incomplete "E2" is considered the most important from the point of view of the miniatures. It is made up of 256 folios of parchment in the elegant French script of 13th-c. codices. Originally it contained 200 cantigas, but the loss of some folios has reduced the count to 196. 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. Deluxe, totally new, full-color facsimile in the original format, limited to 980 copies, bound in full leather with tooling. (more info... ) [item no.9203]

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]

Codice 2111, a parchment ms, had been scraped clean in the 16th c. and reused as an account book for the Chapter of San Lorenzo.

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.

Elementa Musicae, 2. Wiesbaden, 2006. 22.5 x 32 cm, 2 vols, 328, 160 pp. Known as the “St. Emmeram Codex” because of its association with the Benedictine monastery of St. Emmeram in Regensburg, this is one of the most fascinating sources of late medieval polyphony. Compiled by Hermann Pötzlinger during the 1430s and early 1440s the MS comprises an anthology of over 250 compositions drawn from a wide variety of European sources. It includes works by Dufay and Dunstable and their contemporaries and shares concordances with MSS Aosta, Bologna Q15, & Trent 92 to mention a few. Interestingly the manuscipt documents the change from black mensural notation (in common use during the first decades of the 15th c) and the newer white mensural notation which replaced it.

[Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, Rothschild 2973] Le chansonnier Cordiforme de Jean de Montchenu.
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. Limited edition of 1380 copies bound in red velvet after the original; 2-part slipcase covered in black and red leather. (more info... ) [item no.8927]

[Porto, Biblioteca Pública Municipal, ms. 714] Porto 714: Um manuscrito precioso. Manuel Pedro Ferreira.
Porto, 2001. 15.5 x 23 cm, 240 pp. Color halftone of a lovely renaissance manuscript probably written in Ferrara around 1465. This source actually consists of two parts, a theoretical section, fols.1-50 (a tract on solmization, tones and modes and the “Libellus cantus mensurabilis” by the celebrated theorist Johannes de Muris), and a collection of polyphonic songs with Italian or French texts, fols.51-79, copied in choirbook format. The music notation for the song section—executed in solid black and red ink—figures—is unusual for this time period. The composers include Robert de Anglia (2), Galfridus de Anglia (2), John Bedyngham (3), Guillaume Dufay (8) and Gilles Joye (1). The ms features 30 decorated initials executed in gold, blue, red and green ink. Commentary and codicological remarks in Portuguese and English.

[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]

This MS, compiled around 1160, also known as the Book of St. James, is a jewel in medieval bibliography and one of the richest sources for historians, geographers, musicologists, sociologists, ethnologists, art historians and linguists. Consists of five “books”: I) sermons, texts and homilies for the liturgy of St. James; II) Book of Miracles, a collection of 22 miracles credited to St. James; III) narration of the moving of St. James’ body from Palestine to Compostela; IV) history of Charlemagne and Roland; V) “Liber Peregrinationis” (Guide to the Pilgrim)–the oldest touristic guide of Europe. Musical settings include plainsong and polyphonic conducti, tropes, and organa. Limited edition of 845 copies, bound in full leather with matching slipcase. (more info... ) [item no.4984]

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]
