The Revival of Salve Regina. Medieval Marian chants from Aveiro: musical sources, gender specific context and performance

Project description

Revival of the Dominican’s monastic female chant

The uniqueness and richness of the European heritage are most effectively expressed by surviving intangible traditions, knowledge and skills. The surviving collection of the earliest Dominican chant books, created by the sisters of the Dominican female convent of Aveiro in Portugal between 1461 and 1525, and their particularly beautiful Marian chants, demonstrate the powerful European medieval spiritual traditions transmitted and recreated through many generations. The EU-funded RESALVE project will take a multidisciplinary approach to explore and revive the monastic female chant in cultural heritage through combined perspectives of musicological studies and artistic performance, starting with a focus on the long-forgotten antiphon Salve Regina, one of the most distinctive in the Dominican tradition.
