My PhD is on manuscripts of plainchant in eleventh century southern Italy which combine Gregorian chant with local chant repertoires. I am interested in how these different repertoires related to the liturgical practice at the time of the manuscript, especially the old local repertoire called Beneventan chant, and in how the different repertoires interacted with each other in the sung liturgy. My two main manuscript sources are Benevento, Bib cap 38 and 40, which combine chants for Mass from the different repertoires in a number of unusual formats. I am focusing in particular on sets of Masses for the feasts of All Saints and the Exaltatio sanctae crucis, and on saints' days with a Mass from both the Gregorian and Beneventan repertoire.
