This selection of thirteenth-century conductus for two and three voices is drawn from fascicles 6 and 7 of the manuscript Florence, Biblioteca Laurenziana, Pluteus 29.1 (F) and includes virtually all of the conductus in the other "Notre Dame" manuscripts, as well as several unica. The anthology is representative, in terms of both subject matter and musical style, of the conductus repertory as a whole. The musical settings range from short, strophic structures to works of gradiose proportions and from simple and direct to intricate and richly ornamented. The works include compositions by Perotin and poems by Walter of Chatillon and Philip the Chancellor.
