1. MacGilvray, Brian. The Subversion of Neoplatonic Theory in Claude Le Jeune’s <i>Octonaires de la vanité et inconstance du monde</i>.

Degree: PhD, Musicology, 2017, Case Western Reserve University

Claude Le Jeune’s <i>Octonaires de la vanité et inconstance du monde</i> (1606), a collection of thirty-six Calvinist <i>chansons spirituelles</i>, are a neglected source of evidence relevant to his compromised position as a Huguenot in a French academic milieu controlled by Catholic royalists. Le Jeune is best known for his association with the Neoplatonic <i>Académie de poésie et de musique</i> (est. 1570) as a composer of <i>musique mesurée à l’antique</i>. In the <i>Octonaires</i>, he creates metric disorder by vacillating continually between homophonic <i>musique mesurée</i> and the imitative style that it was meant to replace. He also appears to select <i>musique mesurée</i> in a targeted way for verses that undermine its cosmological purpose, which was to represent and facilitate the Neoplatonic doctrines of universal harmonic movement (<i>harmonia mundi</i>) and divine reunion. Along with the circumstances of Le Jeune's career, the work's broader theological and philosophical context gives it the appearance of a retrospective critique, begun at the end of his life and after the Academy had been disbanded.This study draws new attention to the musical ramifications of a shift in ontological thought during the Renaissance: away from Platonic dualism and toward a Neoplatonic theory of cosmic unity and divine extension into matter, which became exposed thereby to the Protestant indictment of vanity. The study also identifies a hitherto overlooked connection between the poetic genre of "<i>octonaires</i>" on vanity and a contrary use of that term in sixteenth-century Neoplatonic and Hermetic literature. Both contexts relate the term to Psalm 119 (the <i>psaume octonaire</i>); in the latter context, the <i>octonaire</i> describes a metaphysical passage through the octave and, by analogy, the philosopher's ascent from the terrestrial to the eighth sphere  – a vain affront to Calvinist sensibilities.

2. Boomhower, Daniel F. The Manuscript Transmission of J. S. Bach's Mass in B Minor (BWV 232) and the Development of the Concept of Textual Authority, 1750-1850.

Degree: PhD, Musicology, 2017, Case Western Reserve University

Despite being long considered to rank among the great musical statements in European compositional history, substantiating the textual identity of Bach’s Mass in B Minor has proven quite challenging. This results from the fact that Bach’s Mass as conveyed in a tangled body of original sources reflects a process of composition and compilation that stretched over nearly four decades and defies modern conceptions of artistic creation. The surviving manuscript sources reflect numerous different constituent elements composed for earlier uses which Bach then combined, along with other pre-existing bits and pieces, to form a totality that wholly reimagines the purpose and intent of its components. This study traces changing attitudes toward the integrity of musical compositions, the musical text of such compositions, and the notated sources that transmit those compositions, beginning with practices common in early eighteenth-century German courts and churches and continuing through to the foundation of the Bach Gesellschaft in 1850. In examining Bach’s music and its reception during the period between 1750 and 1850, this study demonstrates how changing intellectual and social concerns propelled the formulation of a stable textual entity that embodied the idea of the musical “work” and how music was adapted to new economic and social conditions. Over time the sources for Bach’s Mass in B Minor advanced varying representational objectives resulting in different versions of the Mass in B Minor that document distinct moments in history. Understanding changing attitudes toward notated musical objects allows for the contextualization of the concept of textual authority that arose during this period.
