Rhythm in Music and the Arts in the Late Middle Ages
organised by the Masaryk Institute and Archive of the Czech Academy of Sciences,
in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague
Project Old Myths, New Facts: Czech Music in the Centre of 15th–Century Music Developments
Prague, Vila Lanna, 16th–18th November 2020

Late medieval chant books include individual inscriptions or sections of so-called cantus
fractus, melodies notated in rhythmic patterns contrary to the usual 'plainchant' cantus planus.
Despite the fact that the repertory of cantus fractus was an important part of the late-medieval
and early modern musical repertory, it still remains an almost unexplored field. In the current
discourse on musicology, art history and cultural history in general, the cantus fractus
repertory constitutes an extremely promising field, providing an opportunity for mutual
discussions and collaborative outcomes, particularly in view of the general understanding of
"rhythm" in late-medieval life and arts.

We invite participants from musicology, art history, cultural history, medieval philology
(Latin and vernacular languages) to submit paper proposals of no more than 300 words for
20-minute papers to the conference address Tato e-mailová adresa je chráněna před spamboty. Pro její zobrazení musíte mít povolen Javascript..
