“Kyrie Rex Virginum”

This clip tracks the manuscript as the music progresses, a helpful format for linking sound and early notation. The “Kyrie” performed here includes interpolated “tropes,” a fascinating technique (and musical philosophy) that I will be writing about a lot more this week. Also note the florid melisma (extended, textless melodic passage) on the last syllable. Glorious indeed!
