Early Polyphony Study Day in Oxford, 20th Jan

PMMS Study Day
Polyphonic Music of the Late Middle Ages from England and the Continent. Sources, Context and Court Culture

Magdalen College, Oxford - Saturday, 20th January 2018

The 2018 PMMS study day accompanies the exhibition “Fragments of note: the afterlives of medieval manuscripts” at Magdalen College, Oxford, which examines the numerous medieval manuscript fragments held at Magdalen, largely medieval books that have been dismantled in the early modern period and re-used as binding waste or covers. The main exhibition focuses on fragments featuring musical notation and is complemented by a selection of contemporary watercolour, collage, and paper-pulp relief works by fine artist Janet Boulton.
