A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book serves as a key to the deciphering of melodies written in the Middle Byzantine notation. In addition, it offers an introduction to Byzantine chant in a wider sense, dealing with topics such as chant transmission before the neumes, the varieties of Byzantine musical notations, words and music in Byzantine chant, Byzantine and Western neumatic notations, modes, melody and intervals, and the development of the musical genres. Coming into use around AD 1150, the Middle Byzantine musical notation is the earliest notational type from Byzantium that can be transcribed with reasonable accuracy. Consequently, the musical content of manuscripts earlier than c. 1150 can only be fully understood through Middle Byzantine versions. The Middle Byzantine notation continued to be used in Greek Orthodox Churches until the beginning of the 19th century. The book presents a panorama of the styles of Byzantine chant, ranging from simple psalmody to highly elaborate and melismatic pieces. To illus. N° de réf. du libraire AAG9788763531580

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The medieval chant of Byzantium is but little-known, although a large body of music has been preserved in neumatic notation. Coming into use about AD 1150, the Middle Byzantine musical notation is the earliest notational type of Byzantium that can be transcribed with reasonable accuracy; the musical content of manuscripts earlier than c. 1150 can only be fully understood through Middle Byzantine versions. The book discusses such topics as chant transmission before the neumes, the varieties of Byzantine musical notations, words and music in Byzantine chant, Byzantine and Western neumatic notations, modes, melody and intervals, but its purpose above all is to serve as a key to the deciphering of melodies written in the Middle Byzantine notation. In addition, the book presents a panorama of the styles of Byzantine chant from simple psalmody to melismatic chant and it is accompanied by a set of specimens of musical manuscripts of known date and provenance. The text includes more than sixty musical examples and is provided with an annotated bibliography.
