Abstract [en]

This is the first study to examine the seven invitatory antiphons of the Birgittine weekly Office, the Cantus sororum, offering complete transcriptions of the melodies and texts. An important general finding is that these invitatories share many melodic similarities with great responsories, but on a more detailed level this article investigates precisely how these chants relate to known models, both complete melodies as well as individual melodic motives. Four patterns of composition among the Cantus sororum invitatories emerge: (1) unique texts may be combined with melodies that resemble other known chants outside the Cantus sororum; (2) texts and melodies that resemble other variants outside the Cantus sororummay be combined in new ways; (3) both text and melody are unknown outside the Cantus sororum. Overall, these invitatory antiphons, like the rest of the Cantus sororum, represent creative work with existing melodies and texts, including reworkings, borrowings and consistent use of melodic motifs, comprising a significant part of a repertoire at once distinctly Birgittine in character and yet conforming to the common stock of Gregorian Chant. Melodic correspondences within the Cantus sororum as well as in the Birgittine Mass repertoire thus afford an interesting perspective on a soundscape in which the Birgittines functioned and where, through music, their identity was created and maintained.

Abstract [en]

The Mass Liturgy of the Birgittine Sisters and Brethren is a sparely investigated subject and its development after the Middle Ages is an unknown topic. This article presents the Birgittine Mass Liturgy by investigating sources at the Abbey Mariënwater/Maria Refugie, in the Nether- lands which date from the late fifteenth century until the late nineteenth century. Since sources for the Brethren’s liturgy are lacking, this study primarily concerns the liturgy of the Sisters. The most important results are first that the Sisters’ liturgy was not limited to the daily „Salve sancta parens“ Mass, as stated in the Constitutions, but also included a number of Marian feasts. Sec- ondly, it shows that when the double abbey was dissolved in 1652, the Sisters took over a num- ber of feasts previously included in the Brethren’s diocesan liturgy in order to complete the litur- gical year. This article also presents material that has hitherto been only little known, namely the liturgical manuscripts in the Abbey Library of Mariënwater/Maria Refugie, which could be con- sidered for a number of studies on Birgittine liturgy and chant. 

Abstract [fr]

La liturgie de la messe des frères et des sœurs Brigittines est un sujet peu traité et son déve- loppement après le moyen âge est lui un domaine inconnu. Le présent article aborde la liturgie de la messe des Brigittines à partir des sources de l’abbaye de Mariënwater/Maria-Refugie aux Pays- Bas entre le XVe et le XIXe siècles. Étant donnée l’absence de sources pour la liturgie des frères, notre étude traite d’abord de la liturgie des religieuses. Parmi les conclusions les plus importantes, la première est que la liturgie des sœurs n’était pas limitée à la messe „Salve sancta parens“ quo- tidienne, attestée dans les Constitutions, mais incluait également un certain nombre de fêtes mariales. En second lieu, la recherche montre que, lorsque l’abbaye double fut dissoute en 1652, les religieuses ont repris des fêtes appartenant primitivement à la liturgie des frères qui a suivi la liturgie diocésaine, de façon à compléter l’année liturgique. Cet article présente aussi un matériel jusqu’à présent peu connu, à savoir les manuscrits liturgiques de la bibliothèque abba- tiale de Mariënwater/Maria-Refugie, dont on pourrait tenir compte pour un certain nombre de travaux concernant la liturgie et le chant des Brigittines. 

Abstract [de]

Die Messliturgie der Schwestern und Brüder des Birgittenordens ist ein kaum erforschtes Thema und ihre Entwicklung nach dem Mittelalter ist ein unbekanntes Feld. Vorliegender Ar- tikel stellt die Messliturgie der Birgitten vor, indem er die Quellen der Abtei Mariënwater/Maria Refugie (Niederlande) vom späten 15. bis zum späten 19. Jahrhundert untersucht. Da Quellen für die Liturgie der Brüder fehlen, betrifft diese Studie in erster Linie die Liturgie der Schwes- tern. Zu den wichtigsten Ergebnissen gehört zuerst, dass die Liturgie der Schwestern nicht – wie in den Konstitutionen geregelt – auf die tägliche „Salve sancta parens“-Messe beschränkt war, sondern auch eine Reihe von Marienfesten einschloss. Zweitens zeigt sich, dass die Schwestern, als die Doppelabtei 1652 aufgelöst wurde, einige Feste aus der zuvor von den Brüdern gefeierten Bistumsliturgie übernahmen, um das liturgische Jahr zu vervollständigen. Der Beitrag präsentiert darüber hinaus Material, das bislang wenig bekannt war: die liturgischen Handschriften der Bi- bliothek der Abtei Mariënwater/Maria Refugie, die bei der weiteren Erforschung der Birgitti- nischen Liturgie und Gesänge in Betracht zu ziehen sind.

About the book

This volume presents a collection of manuscript antiphoners and other liturgical books containing music from the archives of Averbode, Dendermonde, Geel, Ghent, and Tongeren, from 1100 until 1800.

The present catalogue of manuscript antiphoners and other office books containing music in the collections of Averbode, Dendermonde, Diest, Geel, Ghent, and Tongeren is the first in the series Antiphonaria: A Catalogue of Notated Office Manuscripts Preserved in Flanders (c.1100–c.1800)Antiphonaria is meant to aid scholars in all areas of medieval studies with their exploration of liturgical practices in the Low Countries.

The books in this volume represent those currently held at the abbey archives in Averbode, which houses one of the most cohesive Premonstratensian collections in the Low Countries; the Sint-Pieter en Paulus Abdij in Dendermonde, which preserves the earliest source for the music of Hildegard of Bingen; the Sint-Sulpitiuskerk in Diest; the Archief Sint-Dimpnakerk in Geel, whose holdings include one of the few surviving sixteenth-century antiphoners for a secular church; several archives in Ghent, including the Universiteitsbibliotheek, the Sint-Baafskathedraal, the Musea voor Schone Kunsten, and the Rijksarchief; and the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebasiliek in Tongeren, which holds one of the most substantial and homogeneous groups of sources from a collegiate church in the Low Countries.

An introduction presents a summary of each collection and the parameters of the inventories. Each catalogue entry contains a codicological description of the manuscript; a detailed description of its origin, usage, and history; and a full inventory of its contents, giving special attention to the hymns, first Matins responsories, and first Lauds antiphons, all indexed at the end of the volume.
