Decoding the Past

Decoding The Past: Music, History and Art in a Choir Leaf at UML

In spring 2019, UMass received a gift of a large parchment choir leaf on which the words and music of a portion of the Kyrie Eleison have been inscribed. The provenance and history of this unusual artifact remain unknown: it may be from the the Middle Ages or the 17th century. The speakers will offer observations and analysis of this remarkable artifact.

Wednesday, Oct. 30, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Umass Lowell
O'Leary Library's Mezzanine

Speakers:
Timothy Crane 
Assistant Teaching Professor, Music

Christopher Carlsmith
Professor, Chair of History
