Abhandlungen zur Musikgeschichte -
The study gives a surway of the specific music culture in a monastery of the 15th and 16th century that was obliged to a great tradition of plainchant. The rich liturgy is written down in many illuminated manuscripts and in orders for the services, whereas sources of theoretical reflections allow to recognize the function of music in the church.
