|Abstract:||The music of Guillaume Bouzignac, written in the first half of the 17th century, but rediscovered only in the present one, is unique for its time and place. Tours MS. 168 is one of the two surviving sources of that music.
Opening chapters consider the problem of attribution of the works in the manuscript, identify those few facts that are known to us about Bouzignac's life and career, and identify principal characteristics of "the Bouzignac style."
The manuscript contains over ninety motets, various elements of which are examined in subsequent chapters: dialogues, structural devices, textual alterations, pictorial devices, harmonic style, two-voice compositions, and works for double choir. Concluding chapters describe the three masses and four chansons that are found in the manuscript.
Appendices include a complete listing of the contents of Tours MS. 168, a classification of the works according to voicing, and transcriptions of the following: f. 19 Unus ex vobis; f. 22 Quasi stella matutina; f. 27v Ruisseau qui cours; f. 39 Flores, liliae, violae; f. 52v Veni, veni, Maria; f. 68 Ave cujus conceptio; f. 71v Quare fremuerunt Judaei; f. 88v Beatus vir; f. 94v Lauda Jerusalem; f. 107v Ecce homo; f. 115 Omnium sanctorum.
