Music Class

Invited by Professor Berger, Daryl Morrison presents a facsimile of the Squarcialupi codex to Music 124A. Not only was the class able to view this codex they were also able to create and listen to the music inside.

The Squarcialupi Codex is an illuminated manuscript compiled in Florence, Italy in the early 15th century. It is the single largest primary source of music of the 14th-century Italian Trecento (also known as the “Italian ars nova”). 1
