A performance marking the culmination of a collaboration between Prof. Elizabeth Eva Leach (St Hugh’s College/ Faculty of Music) and the Belgian performing group graindelavoix. The performance will consist of songs from the early fourteenth-century manuscript Douce 308, held in the Bodliean Library. This performance will explore different ways of performing two types of song within this manuscript, jeux partis and motets. It will experiment with performing these songs in their original language as well as in English translation, and will provide the embodied performances that make abundantly clear the complexity and humour of these songs.
