Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

The Roman de Fauvel has great importance to literary history and music history. The musical interpolations within BN fr.146 further the poetic narrative, while simultaneously conceiving a revolutionary music style, the Ars nova. In this study, we analyze two different conducti, to see how the genre developed, what role it played in BN fr.146, and how the interpolated conducti compared with the liturgical conducti of the era. When analyzing a conductus, we considered four open-ended guiding questions: What is it? What is it about? What are some noteworthy elements? Why is it important?
