Early Music Theory
The Early Music Theory website has been set up as an evolving scholarly resource dedicated to a variety of issues relating to the notation and intellectual context of music in the medieval and early modern period, as well as to the inter-relationships beween these issues and musical performance and composition. At the moment it is being used exclusively as a mirror for my ongoing work on the life and writings of the fifteenth-century musician and lawyer Johannes Tinctoris, which has been hosted for some years by The Stoa Consortium but which will eventually migrate to this site exclusively.
I hope that this open-access resource will gradually become an online focus for a wide range of high-quality material relevant to musicologists, historians and performing musicians with a serious interest in such areas of study. If you are involved, either as an academic researcher or musical practitioner, in areas of early music which impinge especially on theory and notation, or their wider historical, compositional or performance contexts, and you wish to propose material for inclusion on this site, please feel free to contact me.
