Musique et liturgie au Monastère de Santa Cruz de Coimbra (c.1650) : les sons d'un Cartapacio à travers l'édition critique du manuscrit musical 51 de l'Université de Coimbra

Abstract : This study is based on Cartapácios de Coimbra, an ensemble of practically unstudied seventeenth century music manuscripts preserved at Coimbra’s University Library (Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra). It is part of a multidisciplinary research project currently in progress at University of Coimbra (Mundos e Fundos | CECH). The research is concentrated on one manuscript among the sixteen that constitute this collection: musical manuscript 51 (MM 51). This study is the first ever detailed study over one cartapácio including its complete critical edition. Although focussing primarily on one cartapácio, a comparative analysis with the respect to the other fifteen cartapácios was also conducted, and located in the specific Portuguese and Iberian context.According to our philological study, the MM 51 seems to be a notebook for private use of a working musician. It contains a very diverse repertoire comprising both vernacular and Latin works. The polyphonic settings in the manuscript are multiple and varied, often within the same work, and belong to a typically Iberian language. The majority of the music is written for eight voices, always in polychorality and accompanied by a guião, with various contrasts produced in particular by a concertato style.A positivist, philological and critical approach was taken in the research, which was supplemented by an experimental performance of the repertory, thanks to the musical laboratory Capella Sanctae Crucis.It is hoped that this thesis study will substantially enrich the knowledge base of Portuguese seventeenth century musical activity.
