Lefferts ----Contents: Introduction Table Bibliography The Catalogue ----INTRODUCTION The intent of this document is to describe the sources of thirteenth-century English polyphonic music that are of thirteenth-century English origin. The few major exceptions will be detailed below. Given the paucity of written sources of any kind of polyphony from before ca. 1200, and the few examples of thirteenth-century English polyphony in manuscripts of non-insular origin or in sources from after ca. 1300, this is close to being a record of all the known English polyphony composed before ca. 1300. I am indebted to Profesor William J. Summers of Dartmouth College for many of the particulars of the descriptions to follow. As an area of scholarly research, thirteenth-century English music, whether sacred or secular, monophonic or polyphonic, has long languished in the shadow of the admirable achievements of musicians in thirteenth-century France. Yet it was precisely in this century that the homogeneity of Anglo-French intellectual and high art culture across northern France and England most decisively began to fragment in a process of "subregional differentiation."1 This process is much better understood in respect to manuscript illumination, sculpture, stained glass, architecture or the academic

achievements of the nascent English universities, for instance, than in respect to music. In the thirteenth century, particularly in the realm of sacred polyphony, the music of English high culture achieved its autonomy, developing into a polyphonic corpus of brilliant diversity and singular musical value as it diverged from the common international (i.e., Anglo-French) repertoire in respect to most features of this art form: texture, melody, harmony, counterpoint, rhythm, constructive devices, form, genre, and notation.2 Neglect of the thirteenth-century polyphonic English repertoire in favor of the French has many causes, including the anonymity of its insular composers, its religious subject matter and performance milieu, and the vagaries of academic fashion in the twentieth century. Above all, however, has loomed the problem of sources of English music, which are large in number but extremely fragmentary as a rule. They yield few clues about size, ordering of contents, provenance, or age. Moreover, only a small fraction of the musical compositions they document are integral works or damaged but restorable; the great majority are represented by isolated pages or smaller strips and patches containing tantalizing but unperformable portions of single voices or irregular segments of works in score. Fortunately, reproductions of most of these sources are now available as highly detailed color digital images stored in the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM) at Oxford University, accessible on the internet, as of this writing, at One caution, though. The DIAMM identifications of individual leaves, where it differs from those used here, have yet to be entered into this document’s manuscript descriptions. Manuscript descriptions are for the most part presented below in order by library and shelf mark, as in RISM or DIAMM, with bibliographic references mostly to material that post-dates the relevant RISM entry. The descriptions aim to make more emphatic than heretofore those instances when two or more distinct medieval sources are housed under a single modern shelf mark (as for example, in London, British Library, Harley 5958 or Princeton, University Library, Garrett 119). Further, re-analysis
2Recent broader overviews of English musical developments in this period include Crocker (1990), Caldwell (1991), and Lefferts (1991). More specialized studies include Wibberley (1976), Lefferts (1986), Malyshko (1989), and Losseff (1994). PMFC XIV (1979) is a recent edition of the restorable pieces and major fragments. For a succinct typology of polyphonic genres, see Sanders (2001d). Lefferts (1986) has lists of thirteenth-century polyphonic motets, conductus-rondellus, voice-exchange pieces, and troped chant settings. Losseff (1994) has tables and appendices cataloguing sources, pieces, and concordances.

Additional 68 and have been given a new "Fragment" number (Frags. xxxix. the large-format volume. as they have been called since the earlier part of the twentieth century. 1957). most reveal traces of quite systematic organization and contain a fairly narrow set of musical genres. Most of the fragmentary codices are separately treated in order by their call numbers at Worcester Cathedral Library. This treatment of Worcester material accounts for five new relevant fragments that were uncovered in the late 1990s in Worcester Cathedral Library codices F. ed. that W1 is the only British source of polyphony to survive (nearly) complete from the 1200s. and the conductus book. in general. . for example. and from isolated music entries on blank pages or flyeaves of otherwise unrelated material. 2 (Rome: American Institute of Musicology. come from Reconstruction I.

number of voices, or alphabetically. Extant foliations, or the projection of implicit manuscript organization to naturally suggested limits, sometimes reveal codices of substantial length. Reconstruction I has foliations up to cxxxix, for example, and Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, 8 has paginations up to 558. It appears that purpose-copied sources were mainly corporately owned, and often, when they had become musically outdated, they soon were thereafter turned over to the book binder to serve as scrap. However, a thorough reconsideration of Worcester bindings during the 1990s recataloguing of the cathedral library has yielded the important result that Reconstruction II only went under the binder's knife in the mid 1400s, and that Reconstruction I and Reconstruction III were only broken up in the later 1520s by Worcester monk-binder John Musard.16 Another exception to a story of quick destruction and re-use is represented by those few chant manuscripts where polyphony was directly entered in the main hand (e.g., Oxford, Bodleian Library, Rawl. liturg. d. 3, or London, British Library, Additional 28598); these tended to be longer-lived books. Commonplace books are private compilations of material, assembled for entertainment, study or devotion out of public sight. Here the owner might include independent fascicles of music and might deliberately leave space at the ends of extracts of all kinds for later additions, related or unrelated, which might include monophonic or polyphonic music. Understanding this, we recognize that many of the extant miscellanies survive complete as such, including, for example, London, British Library, Harley 978 and Arundel 248, or Paris, Bibliothèque National de France, fr. 25408. These sources tend to be more informally copied and more diverse than any book of polyphony (except for the similarly eclectic Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, 8), mixing monophony and polyphony, works in English, French, and Latin, sacred and secular song, and instrumental music. The same informality and diversity, including examples of musical settings of English texts, exists in the more isolated entries opportunistically set down on a blank page or flyleaf amidst unrelated material, such as those in Oxford, Bodleian Library, Douce 139, Oxford, Bodleian Library, Rawlinson G. 18, or Oxford, Corpus Christi
15For greater detail, see Losseff (1994), esp. 25-51 and 144-46, from which the following two paragraphs are principally drawn. 16 See Thomson (2001). At a roughly similar date, an English choirbook comparable to Old Hall was dismantled by an early sixteenth-century Cambridge stationer, Nicholas Spierinck. See Bent (1984).

College, 59. The line between these entries and those of a commonplace book can be easily drawn on the basis of the contrast between isolated compositions and small collections. When the principal codex is apparently not a private book but rather a communal volume like a collection of documents (Oxford, Bodleian Library, Douce 139) or a library book, the random music entries would be of our third type. The distinction is less clear when the host may have been a book for private use, like a diminutive psalter for private devotions (Oxford, Bodleian Library, Rawlinson G 18), or perhaps a textbook from the personal library of the master of a grammar school (Oxford, Corpus Christi College, 59). It is impossible to gauge the loss of music that was copied into commonplace books and more isolated leaves, but at least what has disappeared of these kinds of sources will have suffered the usual depredations that befell medieval books in later centuries, rather than the indignity of quick obsolescence that befell most purpose-copied polyphony. MANUSCRIPT FORMATS Textual descriptions inevitably minimize physical differences between the sources in respect to size, ink color, density and texture of parchment, and the like. As one acknowledgement of the rotulus or book as physical object, and of the activity of the scribe in laying out and executing its design, some figures for the size of page and written area of sources are given in the Table that follows this essay, adding the dimensions of some other well-known codices for comparative purposes. All dimensions reported there are given in millimeters (mm). In this table the sources are ordered from large to small, reporting first width, then height (w x h) for the written space and the entire page. Staff gauge data is for five lines in most cases. Tabulated order is governed by the width of the written space because this measurement is by far and away the most significant dimension governing book production and comparison. Some of these measurement are speculative estimates, and some are exact, at least to within 2-3 mm or so. Of course, writing blocks may vary even in an apparently consistently ruled manuscript. Further, in the case of overall dimensions, figures may only be reliable to within a few centimeters, since we may report the current dimensions of manuscripts that have obviously been trimmed, and other times we report estimates based on, for example, a trimmed upper margin but intact lower margin, where we project the latter dimension back onto the former. Thus all of these

numbers are "circa," and details should be sought in the manuscript descriptions and in the facsimile images themselves, most of which have been photographed with a ruler. In any event, it will be apparent from the data that variability to within a few millimeters has virtually no impact, except very locally, on the relative order of manuscripts by size. The data on formats provides only the broadest of overviews. It mixes purposecopied rotuli and books of music, whose dimensions were dictated by standard formats for polyphonic music, with manuscripts in which music was an addition within already fixed boundaries. It also mixes pages of different formats (nine or twelve independent staves, three or four three-staff systems, etc.). Two reliable and unsurprising tendencies emerge. First, purpose-copied rotuli and books of polyphony tend to be larger than either commonplace books or those with more isolated music entries. And second, purpose-copied rotuli and books tend to increase in size over the course of the century. Organizing the data around the width of written space generates a series that appears to be in the large chronological, as it corroborates chronologies based on other, independent criteria, such as changes in handwriting, musical notation, counterpoint, genre, and constructivist devices. Books of the generation of W1, of ca. 1240, are of the first generation of purpose copied books of polyphony in Western Europe. They tend to be small volumes, on the order of about 6" x 4" (160 x 110 mm) or just slightly larger. By the end of the thirteenth century, within the span of only some fifty to sixty years, music codices had steadily increased to two and three times the previously normative height and width of written space, and thus of overall dimensions. One of the very largest, London, Westminster Abbey, 33327 had exterior dimensions of at least 490 x 345 mm (or about 19" x 13"), for example, making it a bigger book than Old Hall. The surviving rotuli seem to have been about thirty inches long, and dimensionally, the younger rotuli are simply wider, with taller staves. PROVENANCE This document describes over sixty sources, representing at least that many medieval rotuli and books and perhaps up to a dozen more on account of those instances where a modern source may preserve leaves from more than a single manuscript. For only about half of the total is there any information at all concerning provenance. As a rule that information pertains to the host manuscript rather than to its

This reconstruction consists of parchment fragments now housed as WOc Additional 68, Frags. xix and xxxii. The ms order and proximity of the fragments cannot be fully ascertained. Together they comprise seven folios and eighteen items from a book whose original page dimensions were ca. 277 x 203 mm with written space of 220 x 155 mm, ruled in four three-stave systems, with red five-line staves of staff gauge 14-17 mm. All pages evidently were ruled at the same time as the parchment was prepared for music a3 in score. Frag. xix, leaves a, b, and c, comprise three bifolia. This account and the inventory below, following Summers (1983-85), reverse RISM's foliation, putting the leaves in the order c, b, a. Their trimming suggests they were once part of the same gathering, but contents suggest that the order should be c, b, a, and not a, c, b. Leaves c and b are adjoining, but there is at least one bifolium missing between b and a, and another missing within a, since it is not the center of a gathering. Only half of a1, b1, and c1 remain. Frag. xxxii is a single leaf; maximum current dimensions 238 x 206 mm. II. HISTORY Referred to by Dom Anselm Hughes as "The Conductus Book" (WMH, 23). Music of the 13th century was entered first on the left hand leaves of the gathering (c2, b2, a2), leaving the remainder blank. The right hand leaves (a1, b1, c1) were later filled in with 14th-century material. Broken up by Worcester monk-binder John Musard in the later 1520s and used in three or more Worcester bindings of ca. 1527-31. Frag. xix, leaf a, came out of WOc F. 64, an English ms of the late 12th or early 13th century. Frag. xix, leaves b and c, came out of WOc F. 37, a late 13th or early 14th-century English ms. Frag. xxxii is a former front pastedown in WOc Q. 24, an English ms of the late 13th or early 14th century. III.
