About the Book – The Later Cambridge Songs: An English Song Collection of the Twelfth Century
This is an edition of Cambridge, University Library, MS Ff. I 17(1), a manuscript of 35 non-liturgical songs in Latin of English provenance dating from the 12th century. Apart from an edition in German and an edition published in Ottawa in 1989, the manuscript has not been widely studied.
In this edition the late Professor Stevens challenges the assumption that everything of real cultural interest was happening on the continent, to be only palely imitated in “insular” Britain.
A facsimile of the original manuscript is also included.
