Collegium Musicum Concert | Mellon Chansonnier

Folio 44r
Wednesday, October 16, 2013 - 5:15pm

Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
121 Wall St., New Haven, CT  06511

The Mellon Chansonnier is one of the world’s most celebrated collections of medieval songs. This beautifully produced manuscript, Neapolitan in origin and dating from the mid 1470s, may have been prepared for the wedding of Beatrice of Aragon, daughter of the king of Naples, and Mathias Corvinus.

The Yale Collegium Musicum performs a selection of these beautiful love songs, featuring works of Guillaume Dufay, Johannes Okeghem, Robert Morton, and other fifteenth-century composers, accompanied by lute, vielle, viol, and Renaissance winds.

The collection was presented to Yale in 1940 by Paul Mellon.
