This chapter explores both the differentiations and the continuities that must be recognized within the relationship between the oral and written aspects of the making and transmission of medieval song. It posits the continued functioning of oral processes in performance well beyond the deposition of music in books, and identifies reasons not to assume that singers valued them exclusively for their prescriptive role in performance.

Keywords:   medieval song, medieval music, oral process, performance, singers
