Abstract

This session brings together papers on manuscript sources that offer fresh insight into the history of music and liturgy in important centers
in the Iberian peninsula and New Spain from the eleventh century through the twentieth. Each paper presents significant new findings on material that is nearly or completely unknown to musicologists. While the session encompasses a broad chronological and geographic range, the papers in it form a methodologically coherent group and share several basic themes. All the speakers address the interplay between continuity and change, the endurance of tradition in the face of reform, and the local character of liturgical practices. The papers contribute to both the cultural and the musical history of the centers discussed by focusing on the microcosm of an individual manuscript or church archive.
