The five volume editorial project Repertorium Troporum Bohemiae Medii Aevi presents the textual and musical edition of troped mass chants from Bohemian sources from the 11th to the 16th century.
The fourth volume of the complete edition of the mass tropes includes 20 tropes to the Agnus Dei representing the Bohemian tradition from the 12th to early 16th century.
Similar to previous volumes with the repertory of ordinary tropes, the older repertory is represented by the unique collection of tropes included in the so-called St Vitus’s Troparium, which is distinctly French. Included in the volume is an introductory study that summarises basic facts and explains the unusual development of the Sanctus and Agnus Dei tropes in late medieval Bohemia.
As in the other volumes, the edition is complemented by comprehensive commentaries, an introduction and plates (Czech/English).
This publication will be of interest to both the academic community as well as those interested in performance.
