"The Play of Meanings: Aribo's De musica and the Hermeneutics of Musical Thought provides a close reading of the treatise and suggests that an investigation of Aribo's imagery, music theories, and methodology of presentation is critical to a nuanced understanding of not only the treatise itself but also of its conceptual and theoretical relationship to the larger world of eleventh-century musical thought. The interpretive process laid out in this study yields an understanding of Aribo's work that ultimately alters our preconceptions of what a medieval music theory text might or should have been, unveiling a rich field of interconnected meanings."

As such, it is an essential reference for all medieval scholars and musicologists."--Jacket.
