« Late medieval chant books include individual inscriptions or sections of so-called cantus fractus, melodies notated in rhythmic patterns contrary to the usual ‘plainchant’ cantus planus. Despite the fact that the repertory of cantus fractus was an important part of the late-medieval and early modern musical repertory, it still remains an almost unexplored field. In the current discourse on musicology, art history and cultural history in general, the cantus fractus repertory constitutes an extremely promising field, providing an opportunity for mutual discussions and collaborative outcomes, particularly in view of the general understanding of « rhythm » in late-medieval life and arts. »
