All Highlight Lectures run from 1pm – 2pm
‘Reading between the lines: neglected notation in a medieval manuscript’ by Eleanor Giraud
A finely decorated manuscript leaf from a twelfth-century Gospel lectionary will be the subject of this Highlights Lecture. Its depiction of the crucifixion was no doubt the reason it entered the Hunt Collection. However, equally interesting are the readings or ‘lections’ on the reverse of the leaf, which display small marks of musical notation, indicating how the text should be intoned. This lecture will explore the notation used to guide lectors through their melodic reading of lections at Mass.
Dr Eleanor Giraud is the lecturer and course director of the MA in Ritual Chant and Song at the Irish World Academy, University of Limerick.
