Event Description

Among the many music manuscripts of the British Library is Egerton 3307, a collection of approximately 50 sacred compositions from the fifteenth century.  Egerton 3307 is particularly valuable because of the wide variety of works it includes: two settings of the Passion narrative, numerous Latin and English carols, several movements from the Catholic Mass, and other categories of sacred music.  However, for all their variety and value as a lens through which we may better understand English music of the time, the contents of Egerton 3307 have yet to be published in their entirety.  The current study has transcribed the contents and evaluated their role in the development of fifteenth-century style.
