Cantus Scriptus: Technologies of Medieval Song

In partnership with the Rare Book Department of the Free Library of
Philadelphia and the Department of Music, Penn Libraries are pleased to
announce the 3rd annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript
Studies in the Digital Age. This year's symposium will be on the theme of
music in medieval and early modern manuscripts.  We will explore a range of
issues relating to music's materiality in the late medieval period,
especially as it pertains to the manuscript source. We will bring together
scholars and performers who will examine the ways the written text of music,
especially in the unit of the codex, can be expressive as well  as
prescriptive; the multiple functions of music's most important technology -
its notation; and finally, the role that modern digital technology can
facilitate the study of manuscripts today.

The symposium begins Friday evening at the Free Library of Philadelphia with
a lecture and performance by the award-winning early music duo Asteria.  On
Saturday at the University of Pennsylvania, seven speakers will present
papers on various topics relating to the history of music manuscripts and
notation. The symposium will conclude with a roundtable to discuss issues
related to the digitization of music manuscripts and related documents and
the role of the digital humanities in medieval musicology.

Special exhibitions of music manuscripts will be on view at both
