Yolanda Plumley, Professor of Historical Musicology at the University of Exeter, will hold her seminar titled "Recovering Past Soundscapes: The Cachet of French Song in the Low Countries, ca. 1400."
How many of the late medieval French songs found in Dutch manuscripts originated locally and how does this repertory relate to native vernacular songs and to the wider French song tradition? And is it possible to identify particular political or cultural exchanges within and beyond the Low Countries, and even specific agents, that stimulated the transmission of this music?
