Abstract

This study explores the relation between presence and absence of music in medieval manuscripts of 'sung' works as both a material fact and a thematic/ philosophical question. With this in mind, the authors explore the theme of harmony in the version of the 'Chanson de Roland' and its possible relation to ideas articulated in Calcidius' translation and commentary of the Timaeus (a copy of which makes up the other half of the Roland manuscript as well as the place and presence of music in manuscripts of Guillaume de Machaut's 'Le Livre du voir dit'.
