The Scientia Artis Musice (1274) of Hélie Salomon: Edition, Translation and Commentary

During the summer Stipend period I intend to complete work on an edition and translation of the music theory treatise “Scientia artis musice” (1274), of which there is no complete modern edition. Because of the author’s distinctive, even idiosyncratic, explanations of the medieval tonal system and other aspects of music theory, an extensive commentary will be essential. The treatise contains an unpublished tonary (chants listed according to the eight ecclesiastical modes) and many references to practical music making. The outcome of the project will be a modern publication of the “Scientia.”
