The Dance of Heresy

On February 13th, Dr. Dailey gave a paper at the winter meeting of the American Musicological Society's Greater New York Chapter at Columbia University.  Entitled "The Dance of Heresy--Music for the Female Pope," it shows the relationship between "La Manfredina," a dance in British Museum MS Add. 29987 and Manfreda da Pirovano, who was appointed popess by a religious group called the "Gugliemites," followers of St. Guglielma, whom they believed was the bodily incarnation of the Holy Spirit. Collectio Musicorum performed "La Manfredina" in its concert at the Boston Early Music Festival, and will be performing it again in the future.
