Guillaume de Machaut • Ite missa est (1) GB-Ccc

Guillaume de MachautThis movie is part of a series of movies where Psallentes sings Machaut’s Ite missa est and Deo gracias. In an introductory movie the manuscript page as a whole is on show. In related movies, each of the four voices can be followed in detail. The audio is always the same. [Video 1 corresponds to the triplum, 2 to the motetus, 3 to the tenor, and 4 to the contra-tenor].

GB-Cccc stands for Great Britain, Cambridge, Corpus Christi College. This library has this Machaut manuscript on loan, it is actually better known as the Ferrell-Vogüé manuscript, which is in the private collection of James E. and Elizabeth J. Ferrell. A facsimile edition has been planned. It is a beautiful manuscript from the fourteenth century, and it may have been made for (or was at least in the collection of) the Count of Foix. Consulted via (where you can take a look at the whole manuscript). – Hendrik Vanden Abeele
