Editorial Reviews


"Dillon's book is essential reading for anyone interested in medieval French literature or its manuscripts. The study is informed by Dillon's training as a musicologist, but it will be completely accessible to literary scholars, paleographers, and codicologists." Speclum'

Book Description

This book explores the role of music in an early fourteenth-century French manuscript . It sets the manuscript against the wider culture of Parisian book-making, showing how in devising new systems of design and folio layout, its creators developed a new kind of materiality in music: it illustrates how music is expressive in ways that are unperformable apart from its visual representation, and argues that the new attitudes to (material) music making embodied in that manuscript serve as a model for exploring other music manuscripts to emerge in late medieval France.
