Session: Stefano Milonia (University of Warwick)
'A Digital Approach to Contrafacta and Medieval Music'

The paper will showcase the full potential of Connecting Medieval Music, a digital platform for the study of Contrafacta and medieval European lyric, and MedMel, an online database as well as the first online editor for digital editions of medieval melodies for the vernacular repertoire: this will serve as a jumping off point to look at one of the few contrafacta involving troubadours, trouvères and Carmina Burana, in order to see how an interlinguistic and intermedial exchange can work as a vector for conflictual ideologies.
