9780198166443: With Voice and Pen: Coming to Know Medieval Song and How It Was Made Includes CD

Fully revised and updated, Leo Treitler's seventeen classic essays trace the creation and spread of song (cantus), sacred and secular, through oral tradition and writing, in the European Middle Ages. Each of these seminally influential essays has been revised to take account of recent developments, and is prefaced with a new introduction to highlight the historical issues. The accompanying CD contains performances of much of the music discussed.

About the Author:


Leo Treitler emigrated to the USA in 1938. He studied at the University of Chicago and Princeton University. He has held professorial appointments at the University of Chicago, Braudeis University, and the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and visiting appointments at the University of California at Berkeley, Yale University, Columbia University, New York University, Harvard University, the University of Basel and Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt.

Review:


"Treitler's writings have been as broadly influential as those of any musicologist of the last twentieth century who has focused on the Middle AgesThis book will surely receive notices from musicologists; but maybe it will also reach a broader audience among other sorts of medievalists, as it deserves."--Speculum


"As either a review or introduction to a prominent writer on medieval music, this handsome tome of Treitleriania is indispensable. There is little to criticize in this book...Treitler is a musicological master of the essay form, and what we have here in one tome are without a doubt some of his most thoroughly crafted works."--NOTES


"Treitler's work is invaluable in exposing preconceptions and suggesting alternative ways of imagining early-medieval song."--Journal of the Royal Musical Association
