Le léxique musical de la Renaissance, Centre d’études supérieures de la Renaissance, Tours, 8-9 April 2016

By Ascensión Mazuela-Anguita


Last weekend I participated in the seminar ‘Le lexique musical de la Renaissance’, organised by Cristina Diego Pacheco at the Centre d’Études Supérieures de la Renaissance, Tours. This annual meeting brings together a research group formed by musicologists and linguisticians working in different institutions in France, Spain, Portugal, UK, and Germany. After some initial remarks on the objectives of the project, which is based on the study of Renaissance music vocabulary in the vernacular (Spanish, Catalan, and Portuguese), and an updating of what has already been done, tasks for the next year were distributed among the members of the team. Discussion of the criteria of cataloguing in our new online database (under construction) was lively. This meeting proved to be very useful not only in advancing the project’s progress, but also in enriching our knowledge of linguistics and etymology, and learning more about the involvement of new technologies in music research.
