About this Item

Neuware - Modern music notation developed out of the so-called square notation and this out of the Latin neumes. The question of where these neumes came from has long been the subject of scholarly debate. As the author demonstrated in his three-volume Universale Neumenkunde published in German in 1970, there is a very close relationship between the Paleo-Byzantine notation and the Latin neumes. Although the study aroused a great deal of dispute, more recent studies have revealed that the relevance of the Neumenkunde remains essentially unchallenged after 40 years. Those path-breaking research results on the relationship of the Greek and Latin notational systems are now available for the first time in a completely revised and augmented English translation. 405 pp. Englisch.

About this title


"(Floros') work, while not giving the last word in the domain of semiology, could today certainly again be the point of departure for productive developments, both in the domain of Byzantine music as well as in the area of Gregorian chant." (Luca Basilio Ricossa)
