On the Politics and Manufacture of Medieval Choirbooks in Tuscany

If you can overlook some of the opening polemics on architecture and liturgical structure, this lecture provides an incredibly interesting look at the development of chant manuscripts. James Maiell is senior lecturer in music at Vanderbilt’ Blair School of Music, and he is speaking at the Commencement 2011 Faculty Seminars. Prepare for chant uber-geekdom.
