Thematic Catalogue of Troubadour and Trouvere Melody

Thematic Catalogue of Troubadour and Trouvere Melody

by Donna Mayer-Martin

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Understood to be the legacy of late Southern Methodist University music history professor Mayer-Martin, this landmark reference has been fully revised by Keyser (music history, Univ. of North Dakota) to correct first-edition oversights. Newly included is Mayer-Martin's bibliographic outline for a planned but unrealized second volume, which would have explored troubadour and trouvère manuscripts. This song-focused volume organizes extant incipits, or melody openings, by interval. With organizational patterns and data that require specialized knowledge, this is a musicologist's reference rather than a layperson's primer. It remains the most comprehensive troubadour melody index available.
