Description
Abstract (cited)
This essay considers Cormac’s verses first as a composition in a Celtic Latin tradition seven hundred years long, second as a learned composition in three-part polyphonic music, of which it is an early, if not the earliest, extant example, third as part of an ancient tradition of music-making among Insular Celtic peoples.
