148pp. Papers given at the Twenty-Sixth Annual Conference on Editorial Problems. The study of medieval and Renaissance music relies heavily on scholarly editions and translations of theoretical and liturgical sources to provide means of interpreting notation, style and compositional processes. The five essays in this volume deal with the problems inherent in editing and translating such writings, covering topics including early music theory, medieval Arabic writings on music, liturgy, and Euclid's Sectio canonis and Ptolemy's Harmonica in the Latin tradition.
