I work on the music of the thirteenth century, specifically the polyphonic motet. Much of my work has focused on the inter-generic connections between motets and the songs of the trouvères, a group of poet-musicians in Northern France. Musical re-use and quotation permeate both of these repertoires and therefore form the source of a number of branches of my research. My doctoral work focused on the way that quotation is performed and perceived in this repertory, using the wider cultural context of motets to think about the approaches musicians may have taken to re-purposing pre-existent material. In my current project, I use quotation as a tool to think about motets’ musical structures.
