(p.252) CHAPTER 11 Observations on the Transmission of Some Aquitanian Tropes
With Voice and Pen

Leo Treitler

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines seven introit tropes or trope groups. It argues that the problem of transmission is critical for the understanding of the musical situation in the central Middle Ages. Tropes are critical for the study of transmission; for their time coincides with the first epoch of music writing, and their sources provide us with substantial evidence about the way they were apprehended in the communities in which they were current.

Keywords:   medieval music, medieval tropes, oral composition, introit tropes
