Research interests

Rooted in the Old Hispanic Liturgy, my research examines a medieval manuscript associated with 12th- to 13th-century Toledo (Toledo, Cathedral Archive, MS 35.4). The purpose of my project is to explore the creation of the source, the existence of the Old Hispanic rite, its notation, music, liturgy, and contents, after the rite was suppressed in the Iberian Peninsula, and at a time when it was given only limited permissions to exist. 

My thesis closely investigates the palaeographical and codicological formations of the manuscript, looking especially at the morphology of musical shapes (neumes) and their conceptualisation across the extant Old Hispanic sources (with a focus on horizontal Old Hispanic notation). It also explores how music and musical formulas were used within chants in T35.4, and considers how this compares to other musical sources from Iberia. This work hopes to be able to situate this little studied manuscript and its notation within the broader context of the Iberian peninsula in the medieval period. 

Outside of my thesis, I have also worked on developing methodologies for identifying scribes in neumatic notations and the implications of scribal styles and musical dialects in the Old Hispanic corpus with Prof. Emma Hornby and Marcus Jones.
