Dr Margaret Bent

Emeritus Fellow since 2008

Margaret Bent's publications range over English, French and Italian polyphonic musical repertories, manuscripts, compositional processes, notation and theory of the 14th to 16th centuries. Recent publications include a study and facsimile of the early 15th-century Veneto manuscript Bologna Q15 (2008), and (with Robert Klugseder) a reconstructed Liber cantus from the Veneto (2012). Her current work explores networks of musicians in the Veneto, and she has just completed a monograph relocating the origins of Jacobus, the author of the Speculum Musicae, from Liège to Spain (2015).
