Review(s)

"Grier has described Adémar's life and work, even his personality in a fascinating way. He seems to know about the inner feelings of this writer and he seems to be able to explain the smallest details in the chronology. (...) Grier's deep fascination has given us a careful edition of liturgical texts and their music in the important series of Medieval Christian texts CCCM, a very useful contribution to the knowledge of Adémar de Chabannes, and to the liturgical genres: new offices, tropes, sequences and hymns." (Ritva Maria Jacobsson, in: The Journal of Medieval Latin, 24, 2014, p. 297-302)

Summary

Adémar de Chabannes, monk at Saint Cybard in Angoulême in the early eleventh centuryand participant in the scriptorium at Saint Martial in Limoges, is well known for his historical and literary works, and his polemics in favour of the apostolic status of Martial, whose tomb was situated at the abbey that bore his name in Limoges.  He also left behind some 451 autograph folios of liturgical music, much of which contributes to the debate about Martial’s apostolicity by providing a liturgy for him, as well as several of his companions, that recognizes Martial as an apostle.  Along the way, Adémar produced some 100 original compositions.  This edition presents for the first time all the texts and music that pertain to these liturgies, transcribed from Adémar’s own autograph manuscripts

James Grier, author of The Critical Editing of Music (Cambridge 1996) and The Musical World of a Medieval Monk:  Adémar de Chabannes in Eleventh-Century Aquitaine (Cambridge 2006), is Professor of Music History at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. He pursues research in textual criticism and editing music, and in medieval music with a particular interest in music and liturgy in medieval Aquitaine.
