Habent sua fata libelli
Das Lübecker Troparium und mögliche musikalische Interessen des Simon Batz von Homburg
Due to confiscations in 1945, the medieval manuscripts preserved in the municipial library in Lübeck were long assumed to be lost. Most of the codices have by now been returned, including a troparium from the fifteenth century, well-known for its north German variant of “Christ ist erstanden.” The Latin compositions in this source are, on the other hand, almost unknown. This study aims to explore the manuscript's tradition and the purpose it served in the Lübeckian churches. Paying special attention to the unknown song Pneuma erumpnosi telluris rei with the acrostic “PETRVS” (perhaps a composition by Petrus Wilhelmi de Grudencz), a surprising connection emerges between this find and the famous Lübeckian city clerk, Simon Batz von Homburg.

More about this publication?
- The Archiv für Musikwissenschaft ("Musicology Archive") reflects the state of research in music history and current methodology in the discipline of musicology. Founded in 1918, the journal interrupted publication in 1927, but has appeared continuously since 1952. It is one of the leading professional journals in the German-speaking countries, but enjoys global recognition and standing. At the same time, the refereed journal provides young musicologists a platform for the publication of their research findings. In spite of its historical emphasis, the journal is open to all areas of research in music, whether it be transdisciplinary, intercultural, ethnographic or analytical. In its broad spectrum of musical subjects and approaches, the Archiv für Musikwissenschaft serves the goal of promoting contemporary theoretical insights in music.
