The polyphonic conductus appeared in northern France in the late twelfth century and continued to flourish until the mid-thirteenth century as one of four main polyphonic genres of the time. The manuscript Wolfenbüttel 1099 (W2) is a significant source for these works. This edition includes modern transcriptions of the thirty conductus in the W2 fascicles, as well as ten contrafacta and ten alternate readings. All known manuscript versions of this important twelfth- and early-thirteenth-century repertory were consulted in the preparation of this edition.
Veri floris sub figura
Quis tibi, Criste, meritas?
Quid tu vides, Ieremia? . . . Legislator
Quid tu vides, Ieremia? . . . Haurit
O Maria, virginei
Crucifigat omnes
Mundum renovavit
Curritur ad vocem
Presul nostri temporis
Deduc, Syon, uberrimas
Benedicamus domino
Naturas Deus regulis
Gaude virgo virginum
Ortu regis evanescit
